    crust

    1) Shall I call the shell of a egg/meat tart a crust.

    2) The texture of one kind of the crust is like cookie. What should I call this kind of crust.

    3) The texture of another kind of the crust is like a puff/crossiant. What should I call this kind of crust?

    Thank you.

    Re: crust

    I am not a teacher.

    These words will be different in different places. There are many kinds of crust.

    Yes, but "the crust". The material of a crust is "pastry".

    2) The texture of one kind of the crust is like cookie. What should I call this kind of crust.

    An American cookie is defined in a British dictionary as "a sweet biscuit", and a Scottish cookie as "a plain bun". I guess you mean the American cookie, but they can be chewy or hard. "Shortbread" can be used as a very hard crust. There is also "cookie crust", which is not "like cookie", it "is" cookie, made of crumbled cookies.

    3) The texture of another kind of the crust is like a puff/crossiant. What should I call this kind of crust?

    French pastry crust, puff pastry crust.

    Thank you.

    You're welcome, but I'm trying to lose a little weight, and you've gone and made me hungry.
