This is a topic of much debate between two of my friends, usually when they are high.
Or as cheese?
Pie = dish baked in pastry-lined pan often with a pastry top
It's not a cake. The structure is provided by coagulated egg protein, making it a custard pie.
end of story.
where is that pie video that gets posted
That argument has been put forth, but deemed lacking.
Ex. You park on a driveway. You drive on a parkway.
There's no starch in cheesecake. It can't be a cake, by definition.
It's called CheeseCAKE and not CheesePIE.
Stolen from here:
neither really....it's classified as a dessert. But if I had to pick, I'd say pie.

I'd be willing to bet that 9 out of 10 cheesecake failures stem from the fact that cooks expect cheesecake to act like cake. Why wouldn't they? After all it is cheese-cake. But suppose that we could ask for an impartial analysis from someone who'd never even heard of cheesecake. Say, for instance an alien making his first trip to planet earth. [camera pans to Elvis] That does explain a few things, doesn't it?
AB: Um, King. What's that?
TK: That there is pie.
Pie. See what I mean?
AB: What kind of pie would you say?
TK: Huunh. That would require further analysis.
AB: Well, please be my guest.
TK: [takes pie and we hear slurping, burping sounds as if pie is eaten in one bite]
Seeing as how the structural matrix is composed of egg proteins I'd say that's a
[sniff] custard pie.
AB: Custard pie. Thank you. Thank you very much.
The King has left the planet.
Think about it. Aside, of course, from the crust a basic cheesecake only contains some sugar, vanilla, eggs and dairy. It's a custard no matter how you cut it. In fact the only real difference between a cheese cake and a cream pie is that most of the dairy of acheesecake comes in the form of a soft, smooth, tangy, cow's milk cheese containing no less than 33 percent milk fat and no more than 55 percent moisture known far and wide as cream cheese.
Cheesecake is cheesecake. It has cheese, right? So, the cake part must be right too.
If you want pie, there is cheesecake pie.
STOP SAYING CAKE, YOU FOOLS. #)(%*W#$
Thats just a sinister plot to trick you
Cake, cake , cake, cake..........
I agree.. therefore it HAS to be cake!
I cant believe it's not pie!
A peanut is neither a pea nor a nut. And yet..
