    I mean a pie should be a pie right <vbeg>?

      A tart is a pastry dish, usually sweet, that is a type of pie with an open top that is not covered with pastry.

      From Wikipedia

      LOL  My lovely symbolism of a bitter fruit to swallow has turned into a ....

      pie fight!

      •  Here's my definition of tart versus pie (0+ / 0-)

        For me a sweet pie has a not sweet crust -- a classic shortening crust that is flaky.  A sweet tart OTOH has a sweet almost cookie like crust of "short pastry" and is always open faced.  A savory tart has a less sweet short pastry crust, not the flaky crust a savory quiche would have.

        I love cooking and baking <g>.
