    Is Mississippi Mud Pie really pie?

    We went for a leisurely 30 mile ride on Memorial Day. We stopped for a late lunch and split a piece of Mississippi mud pie for dessert. Should this be considered a pie or an ice cream cake?

    I would vote that it isn't pie. No crust.

    Tough question.

    As you are aware, Mississippi mud pie treads the boundry between true pie and ice cream cake. For an accurate answer you'll have to send a complete pie to me for my totally objective evaluation and testing.

    Mud pie has a crust and doesn't contain cake so it must be a pie. Boston cream pie, on the other hand, has no crust but does contain cake so that would disqualify it as being a pie by any definition.

    Mississippi Mud Pie is not a consistent recipe. It is usually a thick chocolate creme pie. I've never had one with ice cream in it.

    In fact, I think the traditional recipe for it doesn't have ice cream.

    This link says it came from California, not Mississippi. And it has two recipes, one with ice cream:
