Er, inter-kingdom anthropology here- in general, when an American says 
'pie', they mean the 9-inch kind that you cut into wedges, usually 
fruit-filled. 'Pot pies' are smaller, but not quite one-handed, and the 
fillings are pretty runny- you really can't eat them out of hand. A 
one-handed sort of thing would be like 'Hot Pockets', only full of meat 
and vegetables instead of pizza sauce and faux-cheese.
