About This Quiz

A pie is a baked dish which is made of a pastry casing which either partially or completely covers a sweet or savory filling. These ever-popular treats came about because of the need for food which was nutritious, easy to store and carry, and was able to last for long periods of time. The first evidence of pies were free-formed cakes known as galettes, but it wasn't until the Greeks allegedly created pie pastry that the true pie was created. 

Today there are countless pie recipes, some of the most common ones being apple, Key lime, pot, lemon meringue, steak and kidney, cherry, pumpkin, pecan, sweet potato, minc, and the different cream/créme pies. People have also begun to put their own spin on the different recipes, some of which have become more popular than the original recipe. There are even regional variations on many pies based on locally available ingredients and culinary customs.

Pies can be found in almost every food store, one of the reasons why we eat them all the time, so it's only right that we could identify them. How well do you really know your pies? Take this quiz if you would like to find out!
