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 :lol: , but what is your intake on this?
