Four & Twenty Blackbirds pie shop like I do, you might have spotted some pics of cherries on their Facebook page. Well, cherry pies are indeed happening right now--both sour cherry and sweet cherry with streusel ($5.50), and they won't last...
Yesterday I made my first major solo outing with two kiddos in tow for the baby's check up and we celebrated with pie--it seemed a fitting thing to do since Lil B made his very first Four & Twenty visit when he was a newborn, too. Let me just put it out there that I ADORE sour cherry pie. In fact, sour cherry pie ranks among my top food memories--the specific pie that I'm thinking of was made by my high school boyfriend's mom with cherries from their own yard. For years this pie has been my white whale--unmatched by any pie before or since...until now.
For pie lovers who can't hit their Brooklyn shop, The Four & Twenty Blackbirds cookbook is coming out this fall and is available for pre-order. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy!
