    A friend of mine asked a rather weird question last week. She wondered when a pie became a pie - when the ingredients are put together with the crust and is uncooked, or when the pie has been completely cooked. She believed that a pie is a pie when the ingredients were put together in the pie bowl and the pie is not yet cooked - even though the pie is still uncooked, it has become a pie. I believe that although the ingredients have been put together, the very definition of a pie is that it is warm, cooked, and yummy unless a pie is meant to be served cold - so in my mind, most pies need to be cooked to become a pie.

    I know, it's a crazy question , but what is your intake on this?

    A pie is a pie when the ingrediants used to make the pie are combined and it's cooked..the end result is a pie, a solid object. The ingrdiants for the pie arn't the end result, the ingrediants dont taste or resemble a pie yet thus why the end result is a pie. Sure the the ingrediants and the recipe order is for a pie, but do you stop there do you just mix the ingrediants in a bowl a call it a pie? no so...

    No, once everything is put together, it's a pie.

    I think that once the pie has been made, with the crust and all, it becomes a pie, and when you cook it its still a pie. Its not like you don't call cookies cookies until you've baked them.

    I'll tell you when a pie is a pie. When you put it in your mouth and the first thing that comes to your head is, "Yum, pie!" and not "Gross, dough and fruit!"
