how come the bear claw, which is described as an "almond filled pastry", doesn't use almonds as an ingredient? just seems weird to me. not complaining, just curious why it doesn't.

I am betting it is a mistake it doesn't use any ot the more expensive ingredients!

. . .Or how about why the Boston Cream Pie, which is clearly a cake, is listed under pies.  I mean, I get that it's CALLED a pie, but it's really only a cake pretending to be a pie, isn't it?confused

Because I'm a total nerd I looked up the defenition of pie. According to dictionary.com:

pie

–noun

1. a baked food having a filling of fruit, meat, pudding, etc., prepared in a pastry-lined pan or dish and often topped with a pastry crust: apple pie; meat pie.

2. a layer cake with a filling of custard, cream jelly, or the like: chocolate cream pie.

...plus other definitions not related to food. Anyway, according to the second definition it is perfectly acceptable to categorize Boston Cream Pie in the pie group :)

 Maybe for the same reason that the cinnamon roll doesn't require cinnamon!!

I dunno. . .according to the dictionary at WillRead4Food.com, it has to have a crust to qualify as pie.  LOL!! 

(Incidentally, I have the same issue with cheeseCAKE looking suspiciously too much like pie to qualify for the "cake" label.  Clearly I have dessert issues. . .)

That dictionary is old or misinformed because I have had crustless pie before. It was pretty cool, pretty good and totally amazed me!

I intentionally make my pies wothout crust on a regular basis to enjoy the flavor without all the extra calories...and so I can add extra ice cream!

 I see I'm not the only one. At least one other person subscribes to the dictionary at WillRead4Food.com.  LOL!!  (and it took me about 10 minutes just to find this post so I could add this, LOL!!):

I made a Boston Cream Pie for *deleted customer in Honeyduke* and earned 308 Baker Bucks and 311 Experience Points. The customer loved it!

  • 'Aha! That's exactly the kind of thing I was looking for. Not sure if it's really a pie, though. Anyway, I think you'd be a star pupil here, why don't you try impressing one of the other professors?
