Sugar Rush: Fall Pies at Four & Twenty Blackbirds
Picking between the autumn pie offerings at Four & Twenty Blackbirds in Gowanus is no easy feat. While they may not make the single best pies in town, they are more than delicious, and you can always count on a mix of classic and creative flavors. A stop at the bakery yesterday yielded a cozy Maple Buttermilk Custard (pictured at top) with a distinctive tang. Other fall choices include Bourbon Sweet Potato alongside a tall double-crusted Pear and Cranberry Pie. And to top it off, the gorgeous Salted Caramel Apple Pie is available all year. Housemade whipped cream on the side? Yes, please! Pies available by the slice ($4.50 each) change daily; call before you go if you're craving a certain flavor.
