Eat Apples & Brown-Bagged Lunches

Apples will forever be associated with elementary school, but in adulthood we don't have have parents or teachers keeping our daily sugar intake in check, so we're afforded the opportunity to skip the fruit and go straight to the good stuff. (See: profound words from Ryan Gosling.) Salted caramel apple pie from celebrated Four & Twenty Blackbirds pie shop in Gowanus is a good entry point into sticking it to the rules of school cafeterias. Because look at that photo. The Elsen's, the 20-something sisters responsible for delivering the goods, are experts at double crusting pies, folding the warm, creamy goodness into buttery, flaky, lightly salted cages for you to devour. The artisanal apple options of Brooklyn are bountiful, of course, so tarts, jams and butters aren't off the table. Dig in and relish your maturity.
