Just wanted to let the community know that this is the first time I've come to the discussion board for some reading and the entire first page of posts were all interesting reads and news bits.
It's pretty nice to pop in and not have to read through flight/damage model arguments or political pie throwing.
I know- I didn't have to read through em before if I didnt want to, but the posts have a serious pull on the reader, one that keeps your pointer
from going anywhere near the 'back button.

You noobs!

I've been walking around Bakewell and I've seen plenty of tarts. None of them were too agreeable, however.

Being a dab hand at making pumpkin pie, I'd have to settle on the former...

Thanks for all that... but I did know about them already...but I don't think that they qualify/count as what I'm looking for. You even mentioned that they are not 'dessert pies' which is what I'm looking for. My Mother-in-law makes these great things (with either apple, cheese, or Meso & Potato in them) that are like a strudel but none of them are pies like you think of when you say PIE!

The link... http://www.eudict.com/ wasn't too helpful but it was nice of you to try. I put in Pie and it gave me Pasteta (whichh is apparently like a liver paste) and Svraka (which is a kind of black bird with long feather). Kolac (which is Kolaci - a cookie (ish) thing) and Pita (which is bread..)

So no PIES still/yet!

You may consider Croatian dialects, because Croatian language have basically three dialects (main) and only one of the is literary language. On link I posted there is only literary vesrion of Croatian.

Towards the end of the second world war the British were working on a top secret tactical weapon; the exploding pie. Comparative tests were carried out with various pies supplied by different nations and the British pie was found to be the best. The results of these tests were kept a secret for many years after thee end of the war. They have now been published. The list of test results is known as the pie chart:

1. Britain: totally tasteless; is therefore often ignored by the enemy until it's too late. Doubles as ballast for invasion barges.

2. France: the exploding quiche. Excellent as an anti-personell weapon (sticky), optional heavy use of garlic can keep the enemy at bay. Can cause environmental contamination.

3. America: blueberry pie; Hopeless...just leaves a nasty stain.

4. Germany: The introduction of the chocolate-cheese pie was deemed a war crime! Chocolate and CHEESE...It's inhuman!

If you ever find yourself in an establishment that offers fresh pecan pie, ask for it like this...

"May I have a slice of that fine lookin' (puh 'khan) pie, please?"

The locals will respect you for it.
