PIE can be both sweet and savory. They are made by baking a crust which is made from dough and inside may contain an assortment of fillings. The sweeter variety of a pie contains all kinds of fruits and nuts, and a popular example is that of the apple pie. On the other hand, the savory kind of pie may contain meat or potatoes or eggs.
Pies are differentiated on the basis of the crust. One type of pie has the crust both at the top and the bottom completely enclosing the ingredients, the other type is the open type, in this the crust is at the bottom the filling is at the top. The third kind has the filling at the bottom and the crust covers the top of it.
They come in all kinds of sizes as well. Some are so small that they are hardly bite sized and others so big that one pie can serve several people easily. The name of the food pie is an interesting story in itself. The word perhaps comes from the bird magpie which is well known as a bird that goes around collecting bits and bobs and similarly the humble pie also can have a large assortment of ingredients based on availability. Even though it is a very old dish, it is popular to this day and is eaten widely in many parts of the world. Its popularity can also be gauged by the fact that it is a part of many slangs and sayings. The Apple Pie is still considered the quintessential American dish. Pie throwing was also a popular ritual in slapstick comedy movies.
Pies also have a rich history considering the fact that evidence of baked pies can be found in the oxford dictionary that was written in the 14th century. England in the medieval times also had a type of sweet pies that were called tarts and contained fruits in them rather than simple sugar. Sugar was a rare and expensive commodity and was not included in these. Today the sweeter variety is sometimes served with a dollop of ice cream and this serving style is called the pie a la mode. Thus, pies are a good and filling meal with a relatively simple cooking process. It is jam packed with both calories and flavors and is a popular choice both when baked as a savory main or a sweet dessert.
