The Mince Pie thread

if a savoury pie has no lid, it’s isn’t a pie.
Nor is it a pie if it has no sides and just a lid.
(I’ve sent them back before and complained)

As for the sweet versions.
Whatever. Get em in my face. Now.

Agreed but a Bakewell tart has a similar pastry arrangement, and is, obviously, not a pie.

It’s also a bakewell pudding and not a tart.

Agreed, probably depends on the part of the country you are in.
I have concerns around the ones with icing tops, on a Bakewell that would be fine, but on mince?

Nope.

Trying to think of pies that aren’t pies.
Or cakes that aren’t cakes.

Your honour, there are mitigating circumstances, they werent mine. I bought some beautiful fresh Eccles Cakes from the bakers to take over my mums but on arrival she offered me a mince pie. I didnt want to offend her so accepted one, but one is never enough.

Which is basically a mince pie in disguise.
Invented by clever Northerners as a way to eat them all year round.

Guest at a Christmas party: That fashion designer from number 33 just went past your window wearing a silk jump suit and a feather boa.
Host, offering a tray: Mince pie?
Guest: No, he was riding a bike.

(Sorry, know it’s a terrible old joke but it makes me chuckle every year)
