Well how about turnover, in the book she discribe a hand held pie that is the size of a couple of bites. That would not be a pie,as we know it, for a pie has to be held on a dish,or baking container. It is not strong enough to hold its self. There fore, would that not say it must be more of a flaky crust turnover filled with berry filling.
There word for it is pie and to us it would be a turnover, a blueberry one.
