Four & Twenty Blackbirds Rolls Out New Holiday Pie

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

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.
