Plum Crumble from Four and Twenty Blackbirds

Plum Crumble Four& Twenty Blackbirds

My name is Brownie and I have a pie addiction. If loving pie is wrong...well, I don't want to be right. When I need my pie fix, I generally head to Four and Twenty Blackbirds...

It's only been in recent years that I've come into my pie love. As a kid I pretty much never ate double crusted pie because frankly, most crusts are not so tasty. Little Brownie favored pie with crumb topping, which I suppose is technically called a crumble. A few weeks back when I saw that Four and Twenty Blackbirds was doing a Plum Crumble, I couldn't resist.

This was my first experience trying their crumbly topping and it doesn't disappoint. Toothsome oats and just the right amount of spices, brown sugar and butter make this a tasty topping. The plum filling was nicely spiced as well with a hint of port. The only trouble with pie at Four and Twenty Blackbirds is that one slice is never enough. I always want seconds...

This looks delicious! I wish I could go to that place and get a slice! Have you ever tried to recreate it yourself?

I finally went to this place after reading about it on your site like 22 times. I feel like a dope for not going sooner. Awesome.
