A pie is a baked food, with a baked shell usually made of pastry that covers or completely contains a filling of meat, fish, vegetables, fruit, cheeses, creams, chocolate, custards, nuts, or other sweet or savoury ingredients. Pies can be either "one-crust," where the filling is placed in a dish and covered with a pastry/potato mash top before baking, or "two-crust," with the filling completely enclosed in the pastry shell. Some pies have only a bottom crust, generally if they have a sweet filling that does not require cooking. These bottom-crust-only pies may be known as tarts or tartlets. An example of a bottom-crust-only pie that is savoury rather than sweet is a quiche. Tarte Tatin is a one-crust fruit pie that is served upside-down, with the crust underneath. Blind-baking is used to develop a crust's crispiness, and keep it from becoming soggy under the burden of a very liquid filling. If the crust of the pie requires much more cooking than the chosen filling, it may also be blind-baked before the filling is added and then only briefly cooked or refrigerated. Pie fillings range in size from tiny bite-size party pies or small tartlets, to single-serve pies (e.g. a pasty) and larger pies baked in a dish and eaten by the slice. The type of pastry used depends on the filling. It may be either a butter-rich flaky or puff pastry, a sturdy shortcrust pastry, or, in the case of savoury pies, a hot water crust pastry.
An old-time favorite of mine.
THE PIE IS A LIE
Meat pies are good. Banana pies are good. Therefore by extension, a pie containing both meat and banana must be good.
I've tried it. And no, it does not taste anywhere near good.
Eh, it sounds like it could be alright if you used a plantain, or other not-so-sweet variety of banana.
Perhaps a beef curry-banana pie would be an ideal choice? Or curry with apples and sultanas in it?
coke! thats what i say.
Coke pie... nice idea! I mean, there is beef and Guinness pie, so there should be banana and Coke pie.
