# Food for thought

When a freshly baked apple pie has just been removed from the oven,the crust and filling are both at the same temperature.Yet if you sample the pie,the filling will burn your tongue but the crust will not.Why is there a difference?

because the crust is exposed to the atmosphere n has a large surface area allowing loss of heat very quickly while the filling is not exposed to the atmosphere directly n tends to lose minimum heat possible.

Vanshika Sachan ,isn't it because the crust is dry,while the filling is moist??
