Ahead of Thanksgiving this year, leading hard cider maker Angry Orchard is partnering with Brooklyn-based pie shop Four & Twenty Blackbirds to launch limited-edition Boozy Baked Apple Pies made with Angry Orchard’s most recent cider flavor: Natural Baked Apple Pie Style Hard Cider. The new cider, which launched this fall in the brand's Fall Haul Variety Pack, will be directly added to each pie.
Angry Orchard’s Natural Baked Apple Pie Style Hard Cider features a sweet blend of juicy apples paired with nutmeg, notes of creamy vanilla ice cream and topped off with buttery, baked flavors so that it tastes just like a classic baked apple pie in a can. To bring those flavors to the dessert plate, Four & Twenty Blackbirds created a classic, lightly spiced baked apple pie using two apple varieties – Empire and Jonnamac – grown right on the Angry Orchard in New York’s Hudson Valley. Each pie features a silky-smooth caramel sauce that’s infused with Angry Orchard’s Hard Cider and is topped with a toasty, buttery oat crumble.
“Cider is the perfect addition to any holiday table, whether paired with the meal or used as an ingredient,” says Joe Gaynor, cider maker for Angry Orchard. “The love for apples doesn’t stop at Cidermaking at our Orchard and we know a good apple pie when we find one. Bringing our seasonal favorite Natural Baked Apple Pie Style Cider with apples grown here on the Orchard to the expert bakers at Four & Twenty Blackbirds, we made a Boozy Baked Apple Pie that’s sure to leave a lasting impression for Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving or any celebration in between.”
The Boozy Baked Apple Pies will be available for nationwide delivery through the Four & Twenty Blackbirds website beginning Wednesday, November 2 for $44 with free shipping.
