Asking the important questions, that’s me.
But really, come on, shouldn’t every state have an Official State Dessert? I mean, it’s only right, don’t you agree?
The rules of the game are good, I think. Only one state can claim any given dessert, no single state gets to claim apple pie or chocolate chip cookies because those are nationally iconic. That sounds fair.
Okay, Missouri gets (obviously) Gooey Butter Cake, which in fact I do not like because it is far too sweet for me.
I would actually be glad to trade with Kentucky. I’ve never posted a recipe for bread pudding, because who needs a recipe for bread pudding? But it’s a quintessential comfort food for me. I particularly love my mother’s bread pudding. Oh, I should post the recipe. I don’t have it handy, sorry, but I will make a note.
Anyway, what’s your state’s dessert and would you trade?
