'Candy-cot' pie is the seasonal treat at Karen's Bakery

piies.jpegKaren Holmes, owner of Karen's Bakery & Cafe, always has something good cooking in the oven.

Now and for the next three weeks or so (while the apricot supply lasts), it's the seasonal apricot pie ($25), weighing in at five pounds. Last time we tasted a slice, we wanted a second right away.

"We source the apricots - called 'candy-cots' - from a small farm in Modesto," said the master baker. "The farmer's father originally brought the seeds for the trees from the Middle East. I'm very certain that these apricots are on my last-meal menu."

Get the candy-cot pie at 705 Gold Lake Drive, Folsom; (916) 985-2665, The bakery is open 6 a.m.-4 p.m. Mondays-Fridays, and 7 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays.
