What are some tasty traditional Texas desserts?
If there’s any food Texas is definitely known for – except for legendary barbecue, of course (might we suggest the Texas barbecue road trip, then?) - it’s comfort food, and one of the best “genres” of comfort food is, of course, sweet things. Naturally, there are some traditional Texas desserts that are close to the top of the comfort food chain, thanks to being outrageously delicious (and oh-so-comforting). Some excellent examples include cowboy cookies, which are basically giant oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, Texas pecan pie (there are too many places that lay claim to having the best pecan pie in Texas, but we’re not complaining), and, of course, Texas-style chocolate sheet cake.

Where are some great places to get dessert in Texas?
There are numerous restaurants in Texas (and bakeries in Texas) that pride themselves on being THE place to be for the best desserts in Texas. We’re inclined to agree with pretty much all of ‘em... come on! How are we supposed to choose, especially when some of the options include Austin’s famed Kellie’s Baking Company, Slovacek’s in West, and 2tarts, a classic in New Braunfels (and forever the best place for made-from-scratch deliciousness). We also can’t get enough of bakeries like Emma + Ollie, Newman’s Castle, and Oxbow Bakery (which doubles as one of our favorite antique shops in Texas, too).
