Pies, Tarts, and Cobblers

1 Comment

Huyen and I were talking tonight and she asked, “What’s the difference between a pie and cobbler?” In case you we wondering the exact same thing, here’s the answer from iVillage (warning: barrage of ads ahead):

Cobbler is a fruit dessert baked in a deep dish or baking dish that has a topping sprinkled on before baking. A tart is made with a crust formed in a tart pan or a low, straight-walled pan with a removable bottom. A pie, similar to a tart, is baked in a pie pan that has sloping sides. Both a tart and a pie can have the crust prebaked and filled or baked with fruits, custards or chocolate.

Well, there you go!

    I’ve never been much of a fan of pie, so if you have any killer recipes that will change my mind, just point me in the right direction!
