Well, where do you stand?

EDIT: Also, do you prefer pie or cake?

Pie.
It has a crust and no cake structure, no springiness.
All cake has a fluffy springiness.

and before someone mentions fuitcak as the exception, fruitcake is not a cake. It is a monstrosity.

Closer to pie in construction, but I'd go neither.

Cheesecake has enough difference from pie/cake and enough of its own variations to be its own category.
I would argue a french silk pie is the closest textural resemblance. Possibly key lime.

Sure, but cheesecake is unique in its construction/ingredients from most pie.

It is different enough from traditional pies to be its own thing.

If I had to classify it as pie or cake, absolutely pie.

To a degree, but much like french silk, the finished product is not put in to the oven- the final step is refrigeration.

I would argue all cakes are cooked, yet not all pies are.
The crust, the pour, the cooling, the texture to a degree, all common traits cheesecake shares with dishes that are undoubtedly pie.

Next question.

Is Ice Cream Cake a pie then?

Cheesecake has cake in the name. It is a cake. If it were a pie it would be called cheesepie. I have spoken.

Cheesepie just sounds gross lol so I think when they named it they chose cake instead to make it more appealing

I made strawberry cheesecake for the first time ever this past Sunday.
it was a sugar free recipe and it was very good. Not nearly as good as regular

I can’t believe I have to sign in for this shit. Why are you idiots arguing over cheesecake? It’s fucking delicious, end of fucking argument

Obviously another unintended consequence of these fucking bullshit house arrest “orders”...
