Four & Twenty Blackbirds is quickly becoming a favorite dessert spot of mine. Last Friday afternoon I made a return visit with a dear family friend and Little B. We had planned on going early in the afternoon, but between a lunch date and getting Little B changed and ready for a pie outing by the time we got to Four & Twenty Blackbirds it was closing in on 5pm and they were down to their last two pies. Oh noes...!
Fortunately the last two pies were Apple Rhubarb and Chocolate Chili. Yum. I know it's down right unAmerican, but I have to admit that apple pie isn't really my favorite. If it's a choice between apple and another fruit pie, I would seriously consider the other pie because frankly, apple pie can be a little boring. A little mushy. A little too sweet. None of those problems presented themselves in the slice of apple rhubarb pie. Four & Twenty Blackbirds makes a spectacular apple rhubarb pie. The apple and rhubarb slices were tender and delicious. No mush factor here. I would get this pie again in a heartbeat.
My friend got the chili chocolate pie and the bite I tried was so good I had to bring a slice home to Lawman. The chocolate filling was rich and creamy and it had a really nice chili kick. Definitely a winner.
