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”...
We don’t need this kind of negativity. It is delicious tho

Structurally speaking cheesecake is not cake, but because it is not topped with a pastry it is also not a pie.

Cheesecake is a tart.

There is nothing more 'Merican than "Cheesepie." Our fatasses would eat that shit up. Mmmm. It's a pie, btw.

But it's not CAKE therefore NOT cake
It certainly identifies as a cake by name at least.

The funny thing about cheesecake is as a child I was absolutely ANTI cheesecake, because I hadn't ever had it and the name fully freaked me out like eating chili on a Cinny roll status.

So I was into my late teens before I ever even tried it. It is legit.

Imagine being traumatized as a child by a cheesepie lmao

It's kinda crazy because it isn't a cake and there isn't any cheese on it. Whoever named the cheesecake/pie is a legendary troll

I'd say it's more like pie.

And I prefer pie over cake -- except if it has cheese on it. Some people (midwest thing?) melt a slice of cheddar cheese on apple pie -- that just sounds fucking disgusting to me; and also, that's how Ed Gein used to eat it, which is another reason not to like it I guess...

I've lived in the midwest for 30 years and I have never seen anyone do that or even suggest doing that.

Well, it is a thing, I promise you. Think it's big in Wisconsin, for obvious reasons.

Also, I think Travis Bickle orders it in Taxi Driver :)

You are correct. I looked it up after I read your post and was absolutely disgusted.

This combo is so fucking strange, but I'm going to have to try it.

It's sounds as strange as cinnamon rolls with chili, but even a slice of apple with a slice of cheddar goes well.

oh fuck, cream cheese? lol it'd probably help if i knew how to make one of these things. I'm not a baker
Also, I have lived in the Midwest for 54 out of my 56 years and have never seen a person put cheese on an apple ple. Must be a regional thing
