Phantom Gourmet: Best Bakeries

BOSTON (CBS) – Thanksgiving is less than a week away, but Dan Andelman is already thinking about dessert.

The “Sugar Baking Company” in Roslindale is a bakery that does things the old fashioned way.

Apple turnovers are cut, filled, and folded by hand and the classic whipped cream cakes are layered with fluffy golden cake, real whipped cream, and juicy strawberries.

New Hampshire’s “Portsmouth Baking Company” is known for fragrant French toast bread pudding, vibrant red velvet cupcakes and out-of-this-world chocolate chip cookies.

“Sweet Tooth” in South Boston specializes in special event cakes along with fresh-baked pies and over-sized chocolate cheesecake brownies.

Pumpkin pie is the king of all thanksgiving desserts. But cookie platters, fruit tarts and even cupcakes are getting more and more popular.
