Raspberry Tarts take Canter Stage at Frank's Bakery

By  | 

Are you ready for raspberries?

It's the time of year in Maine where fresh berries are making their way into treats.

Keeping with tradition, Frank's bakery in bangor has started churning out raspberry tarts.

Strawberry tarts have been available for awhile but pastry chef bernadette gaspar says now there are enough raspberries coming in to keep up with demand, "Between the end of June just before the 4th and the end of August we sell between 5 and 6000 tarts most of them being raspberries."

Gaspar has been filling the cookie dough shells with cream cheese, berry sauce and sweet, local, raspberries for more than 20 years.
