    • Neither does key lime pie or lemon meringue pie.

    • Yeah, lemon has meringue on top, and key lime pie is more of a custard, same with lemon pie. Cakes are typically filled with custard, but are rarely made of them.

  • because by definition it is closer to a cake than a pie. a pie is defined as a baked good with a filling and a pastry top and base. i understand some pies do not have pastry tops but most do

  • Yes technically it's a pie as it has a crust, but for whatever reason it's been called cheese cake for many, many years!
