You’d think that with Thanksgiving over and having met their target of 800 pies baked and sold for that holiday, the lovely ladies over at Four & Twenty Blackbirds would let up a bit and stop tempting us with dessert. Nope. No dice. Not a chance. The way they look at it: You can never have too much pie, and a holiday without one is like Christmas in Whoville without roast beast. And so they’ve been busy out in Gowanus experimenting with crusts and fillings, all the while perfecting a brand-new concoction called Egg ‘N’ Grog pie. “Essentially,” they say, “it’s an eggnog custard with a gingerbread crust.” To us, it sounds like something that might finally bridge the gap between Cosby-sweater-wearing eggnog lovers and grumpy eggnog haters.

Welcome to the world, Egg ‘N’ Grog pie.
