Pie is always better than cake.

I always have that problem with apple pies - they're fine, but not great, mostly due to mushiness, wateriness, or my ineptitude as a baker (or some combination of the three). Still, the idea of that sounds awesome, and it seems like with tweaking, you could have a great pie.

I've come up with a few ideas to fix the liquid problem and using tart apples might help...but I think at the end of the day it would be easier to make a *good* apple pie and add home-made caramel and sea salt on top of it, rather than integrating it into the pie.  So now on to the quest for a good apple pie......

Do you have Bramley apples in the US? by ambrosen (4.00 / 1) #3 Tue Nov 07, 2017 at 02:02:33 PM EST
They're undoubtedly the best apples for pies, in UK tradition.

well hold up. There is some debate about whether cheesecake is really a pie. And then there's pizza pies, are they really pies? I mean, papers please. Am I right?

What I am saying is cheesecake muy├╝ber pizza. Sorry for being weird, but this is important.

Chill out, snowflake.

In Chicago, pizzas are pies by lm (4.00 / 1) #9 Sat Nov 11, 2017 at 10:48:12 AM EST
Other places they're just called pies.

I was unaware of the cheese cake/pie argument. I'm going to troll all my relatives this holiday season.

Not a fight for the lay-peeps by dark nowhere (2.00 / 0) #10 Sat Nov 11, 2017 at 12:34:12 PM EST
but if you get into food theory, cheesecake doesn't fit in the cake slot. I mean between lemon, lime, and cream pies, cheesecake is either pie or the missing link. But I think quiche is the missing link.

I wouldn't pick that fight though, it makes you a prescriptivist, which is a moral evil.

Chill out, snowflake.

And not getting it says something about you :p

You have a weird sense of `not getting the joke' by lm (2.00 / 0) #13 Sat Nov 11, 2017 at 08:49:41 PM EST
But, as I'm not a prescriptivist, I won't say that's a bad thing.

I was calling you a prescriptivist? Because I was calling you a troll. And you know it's true.

er, some pizzas are pies by wumpus (4.00 / 1) #15 Sun Nov 12, 2017 at 12:43:50 PM EST
There are also thin crust Chicago pizza. Often round and cut into squares. Another place made what I insist is Wisconsin pizza: fill the deep dish largely with cheese.

The only constant difference between Chicago and New York pizza is the lack of excessive grease.

Wumpus

Chicago pizza is a bit different, but still pizza. Nothing like the bizarre mutation that is Cincinnati chili (which is oddly good, but certainly not chili).

You lost me at "oddly good" by lm (4.00 / 1) #16 Sun Nov 12, 2017 at 03:14:44 PM EST
Although if we exclude Skyline and Gold Star, I'd probably agree. Well, except for the whole "certainly not chili" thing.

Anyway, it's just language games at this point. Just because botanically speaking all grains are fruits and all fruits are vegetables, that doesn't mean that we can't say that most fruits are not vegetables if we're speaking in a culinary context.

The best apple pies by ObviousTroll (2.00 / 0) #7 Fri Nov 10, 2017 at 08:39:40 PM EST
The rule I was taught is that you need ot mix your apples up. Generally, 1/3 sour apples (Granny Smiths), 1/3 sugary apples (Honey Crisps) and 1/3 tougher apples. (Fujis?)>
