Bakery in Maysville
- D.L. M
I grew up in Maysville, so I was familiar with Magee's when it was down on Market Street. Saturdays were a treat because it meant a trip into town to the library and a stop at the Bakery for a transparent pudding or cream horn.
Now I'm grown and living in Nashville, Tenn., but a visit to Maysville still includes a stop at Magee's Bakery. The bakery may have moved, but neither the quality nor the flavor have diminished in the least.
It seems that transparent puddings, or tarts, are still a regional thing as I can't find them anywhere else, but they're known around the world, partly due to George Clooney's love of this rich dessert. He grew up in the area, and he's known to call in an order for shipping to one of his homes or the location of his latest movie for a little taste of home.
I think that's what they are to me as well -- a little taste of home.

Still to this day I’ve never had anything that comes close to some homemade tarts , I visited from west TN to see my grandparents an I always wanted to go to Magees.

As a child growing up we've all loved sweets. My favorite time was coming to my grandmothers and coming to the wonderful decorated cookies. I still to this day as an adult love this place.
