Fully-enclosed pie fingers, like hot pockets but skinnier. The inside would be your regular pie fillings, apple, berry, cherry, pumpkin. The outside would be your usual crust, fully enclosing the filling.

Apple pie fingers with caramel, chocolate and....CHEESE dipping sauces. Yum!!

Berry pies with peach, white chocolate and sugar glaze dipping sauces.

Pumpkin pie with sweetened cream cheese, cranberry and dark chocolate dipping sauces.

Easy, finger food, delish, dunkable pie!

       Read: Pie Diapers. Was pleasantly surprised that I was mistaken.

       This is a "recipe"... [edit...] Here's one [link].   

       And it sounds delicious! You gonna eat that, C?
Amos Kito, Oct 13 2003
  

       Thanks for the comments so fast! This is my first idea, so I'm sorry if it doesn't seem as good as others. I mean it as a commercial product, possibly available at fast food resteraunts, deep fried, not as a homemade product. Just a tastey, over-processed pie product with dipping sauces.
beastbunny, Oct 13 2003
  

       Doesn't seem recipe-ish to me. I took it as a more commercial product. Sounds like it would be the kind of thing available at pizza places as a dessert item. Sounds alright to me!

       Doesn't sound like a recipe to me, Amos. Sounds like a suggestion for a new shape of pie.

       for those without a sweet tooth, presume "steak and kidney", "chicken", "beef and ale" are all for consideration?

       beef & ale. mmmm
po, Oct 14 2003
  

       Sounds like Hostess pies, or the ones at McD's.

       //steak and kidney//
[jon], with that unpleasant thought, I've removed mfd "Recipe". Blecchh.
Amos Kito, Oct 14 2003
  

       [amos] never had steak and kidney? Gosh. Well. You should try unless you are a confirmed vegetarian. [Actually, a confession, I don't like S&K pie at all, but its a British institution and thus worthy of mention].
jonthegeologist, Oct 15 2003
  

       //Well. You should try//
I've seen "meat pies" only twice. A friend bought six of them, and they had a filling that was the texture and color of a strawberry milkshake ... but... well... "meat flavored", I think... nobody ate them...
Thinking that was a bad batch, I bought another, at a later date.
OK, these were both roadside vendors (who sell those wonderful British un-chilled Coca-Colas). The "real kind" is excellent, I'm sure. I'll try most anything once, but I've managed to develop a phobia of British "meat pies".

       Mini-sized (insert multi-national Mc food corporation here) pies with icing-dip ... patent that quick while the oven's hot

       This came up just now on a google search I was doing to try and determine the proper word to describe a saying such as "he's got fingers in lots of pies" - it's not an aphorism, or a maxim. Nor is it quite an adage. These things deal with truisms and pieces of traditional wisdom, whereas the pie thing is more of an abridged allegory. But is there a proper word to describe what that is?   

       For the record, I had a lovely steak and kidney pie with chips and beans today, in preparation for this evening (a friend from work is having his leaving drinks tonight)   

       Despite these countermeasures, I may still be considerably grumpier than usual tomorrow morning.

       It's just a metaphor. "He has an interest in many endeavours" is changed (from 'metapherein', the Greek for 'transfer') so that "interest" becomes "finger" and "endeavour" becomes "pie".
angel, Jan 25 2008
  

       Ahh shame - I'm still holding out hope for a specific sub-class of metaphor that is in common usage - but then perhaps that's where cliché rears its ugly head.
zen_tom, Jan 25 2008
  

       For a while, Wal-Mart was selling little 2" square wrapped pies. We bought a few packages of them (6 to a), apple and cherry. They were just the right size and shape for a tasty after supper dessert...about four bites on each little pie...and they were delicious. Great with coffee in the A.M.   

       Went back to get more...all gone and manager said no more...they were just a marketing try.

       Mince pie Shirley?   

       [zen_tom] If you look up metaphor on wikipedia you will find several sub-classes. From now on, I'm going to describe people who fit the description as being 'finger pied'.   

       eg 1 "Is Steve a good contact?" "No, he's not very finger pied."
eg 2 "Can Dave help me with this project?" "No he's a bit finger pied at the moment."
