Yes or no.

It's been more years than I care to count but the Mrs made a pie for tonights dinner, but yet again without a bottom.

Pie: Crust on top, pastry on bottom.

Pudding: Crust on top.

Tart: Pastry on bottom.  

Yes or no comrades.... and no soggy bottom jokes please. 😉

would you be able to eat one, in your hand, made the same way as your missus makes "pies"  ? ?  

 

Think "steak & kidney " pie....

.......................................................................................ditto

Think "apple pie"

Can you imagine a "Mr Kipling" apple pie,

being sold in a box of 6 with no base to the pie ? 

Er... somehow, I think that would be a NO... ( marketing disaster too, !

 

 

)

Interestingly... a "Lemon Meringue Pie, has a base...but no "lid"  !

Re: Yes or no.

I think @Minivanman is treading on very thin pastry criticising Mrs Minivan's culinary descriptions............

Re: Yes or no.

So what's a flan then?  Looking in the dictionary it says Quiche Lorraine is a tart; such language!

Re: Yes or no.

I guess it's how we a brought up. My old mum always made pies with bottoms, but then she also made pies out of mince from the butcher. 

But for sake of peace and a rumbling tum it'll have to be what the Mrs say it is - otherwise it'll be a custard pie in the old boat race! 😲

Re: Yes or no.

Personally I prefer a (hot) meat pie NOT to have a base. Stops it being all gooey.
Individual ones, yes I can see the reason for having a base, to hold it. But family ones NO, NO NO.
I couldn't imagine a scotch pie not having a pastry case, but a steak pie should only have a FLAKY top.

@HairyMcbiker   but... in reality...a pie with only a "lid" or "flaky pastry" roof, is only a bowl of  "chunky soup"  with a pastry topping on ....

 

Bleugh! Crazy

Re: Yes or no.

Some good pie shops in this area....but you get what you pay for.....some of the stuff sold in the larger supermarkets taste awful....

Local market is not bad either.....

Anyone living in or near Bury  are lucky as several of the market stalls there have some good pies.

For me the less pastry the better, have had pies where there is more pastry than meat.....and...at my age indigestion is a problem if I eat pies consisting mainly of heavy pastry.....that flaky pastry is ideal.
