Maple Buttermilk Custard Pie

Four & Twenty Blackbirds, the pie shop in Gowanus, gets a lot of praise for their seasonal fruit pies. Frankly speaking, I’ve always preferred their custard pies — the Salty Honey pie is one of the greatest things I’ve ever eaten. On a recent visit I tried the Maple Buttermilk Custard pie, and it’s another winner. The maple flavor is complex, and just when you think it might be too sweet it’s balanced out by the pleasant sourness of the buttermilk. It’s so good I considered going back for a second slice…
