Pie, as in fruit pie, I don't care for at all. Cake versus pie, I'm definitely Team Cake. I'll make a pie a couple of times a year for the wife, but that's about it.
Pie, as in meat pie, I could eat every day.
Fruit tarts, I've made a few of those, usually plum, apple, or pear, and I like those a bit more than a two-crust fruit pie. I like spreading the glaze on top and it gets that really shiny, almost plastic look. I love that.
It's interesting to note the cultural differences. I have a few American cookbooks and a few Euro/Brit cookbooks, and the desserts are not quite the same. Lots of sugar in the American ones, where the others are sweetened more with fruit.
Years ago, we were in Vienna and went to the famous hotel/cafe for Sacher torte. I liked it, because I like bitter chocolate, but MrsCO hated it, and her main complaint was, "This isn't sweet at all. It's almost savory. Blech!"
