Hot Pies!

I love pies!  Not just the sweet dessert kind, but the savory dinner kind as well.  Cooking medieval food, I have come across dozens of varieties of meat, egg, cheese, fruit and vegetable pies. Pies are often called "tarts" and if something is served in a "coffyn" then it is a pie with a top crust.

Many of the pies listed below are also part of the "Feasts of Ice and Fire"  collection (Hotpie is actually a minor, but very popular character in the books) but some are from other fantasy books or are modern recipes that are "medievalish"--that is to say they are made with ingredients available in medieval Europe and cooked in a style common then, but no recipe from the middle ages is found.
