OK, so I just saw a post from the local FB vegan forum where someone asked if there were any shop-bought vegan pie crusts. Someone else suggested Jus Rol, and the OP said "I meant pie crust as in the thing you put sweet things inside to make a cake. maybe its got another term here. its a base?" I've never heard of pie crust + sweet stuff being referred to as cake in any way (even a bakewell, which is cake and pie, is referred to as a tart). Is this really a thing, or is this person on crack?

The person probably means a soft sponge flan base, which we use for fruit and custard desserts.

Ah, that kinda makes sense, in that I know what you're talking about, but that still doesn't make it pie crust.

They are stacked with the shortcrust pie bases in the supermarket. I think she probably said pie crust in mistake for flan base, as she did then apparently correct herself.

Well, she just posted a pic of what she's looking for, and it's a pie crust as most people know pie crusts. I don't know why Jus Rol won't work, because it looks like what she wants, but she's saying it's not the same. So I'm going back to my original assessment of "on crack".

You know, I kind of doubt that she is literally "on crack" and as someone who works with a wide variety of women, including those using crack (often as a form of escape from past or current abuse and violence), it seems like a really shitty pejorative to use. Especially since folks using crack are often amongst the most marginalized in society and experience huge rates of violence.

You're right, j-dub, and I apologise. It was a poor choice of words, and I should've given more thought to what I posted before I said anything.

Maybe she's confused about jus-roll because it isn't ready baked? You know like the pie crusts that you can get in America that are an actual pie crust, rather than the dough you have to bake yourself? Am I making any sense? I got a bit too much sun today.

I'm really confused about this. I can't think of anything besides pastry pie case and flan base. Could you let us know if you find out what she means?

Maybe she meant a biscuit crumb base (like for cheesecake)?
