How much is too much to spend on a pie? Is $35 bucks too much?

Yes, schmuck, it is. At least, the wife sure thinks so and she ragged on me all weekend for forking over that much for a salted caramel apple pie at Four and Twenty Blackbirds. We were out in Brooklyn on Saturday visiting cousins and I’ve always wanted to try this place so on our way back home I bought a whole pie.

Was it worth it? As a treat, yes. The pie is damn good. Dumb expensive but good. Not the best pie I’ve ever had but I’d rate it 8 out of 10 for sure. I got a slice of chocolate pecan pie for the wife who stopped busting my chops momentarily as she ate.

Very nice looking pie, but it probably should've cost about $10 less.

I paid $23 for a chocolate pecan pie at my local joint: http://www.cafepierrot.com/

I bought two of 'em actually, and my wife busted my chops for spending $46 on Christmas pies. They were awesome, and didn't last more than a couple days.

If you ever get out to the north fork of LI, go to Briermere Farms in Riverhead (www.briermere.com) and get one of their fruit pies! Their apple crisp is heavenly (and $16.00)
