Best dessert in every state
 
If there is something I like more then travelling it would probably be eating,eating dessert to be more precise. I specially enjoy local cuisine and getting to eat something that is closely associated to a specific region and that has been enjoyed by many generations. So I am in search of the most emblematic dessert each state has to offer. If by any chance you feel you know the restaurant or bakery that makes the best please let us know. And for extra points a recipe and picture would be great as well.

New Orleans - bread pudding with whiskey sauce at Cafe Bon Ton.

In my area of the Mississippi Gulf Coast restaurants are judged by the quality of their Bread Pudding and recently Tiramisu.

How about beignet or King cake?

Anywhere in the southern US - PECAN PIE.
I like it served warmed, with scoop of good vanilla bean ice cream or a dollop of real whipped cream.
My favorite recipe:

Thanks for the recipe. Pecan pie is really good and I also like chess pie which I think is also from the south.

The Fraser Valley (in beautiful British Columbia) has the best berries: strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and wild blackberries.

The wild blackberries are just starting to come in. You can pick them right from the road, and make your own blackberry shortcake or trifle:

The Chilliwack Airport also has the best pies. It's close to the Trans-Canada highway, and has a big parking lot for rigs.

That looks excellent. Any recommendation on where to get the best Nanaimo bar?

The Bread Pudding in Morgan City La. at Rita May's.

The best pecan pie I have ever had was the Chocolate chip version with a scoop of ice cream that Mimi's used to have on the menu. If anyone knows about a new source, I'm listening.

Machado and Ikeda pies in Auburn California are strongly recommended. Why choose one as best when you can hold out and try them both.

Travel hungry and fix it every chance you get. Pat

Used to get them at several Mexican restaurants in Oklahoma. Great with honey. The places that serve powdered sugar fall short, but do look good. Pat

For many of us in south eastern PA it's Shoo Fly Pie! Warmed up a bit, delicious!
