We don't have an official dessert in Virginia, but it ought to be peanut pie! Like peacan pie, but with peanuts.

Well, since New Jersey's (esp. Hammonton)the blueberry capital of the world (and God willing if it doesn't storm as much as they say it will, we'll be at the Hammonton Blueberry Festival tomorrow!), and up there with cranberry production, too...well, something with either fruit. Probably blueberry-something. But if it's listed, it's unofficial.

I'm not from a state, but the Nanaimo bar was invented about 200km from here. It's totally a dessert I associate with BC.

Caraway Cookie? Never heard of it. I think the NY State Cookie should be the "Black and White" cookie. (Sold in Germany as the "American").

Blackout Cake = Ebingers.
Nesslerode = somehow I remember that...

Yeah, in Canada we have provinces. "States" sounds weird. In the province of Nova Scotia apple crisp would be the official dessert.

I just found out that New Mexico has a State Question.
so help me, I read it yesterday in a tour guide)

The question is: Red or Green?

Who gets it?

(hint: easy, it is a foodie question)

Growing up in Iowa as a kid, I would have thought it a (cherry/berry/apricot/poppy seed) kolache. They showed up every church, school, family function my entire childhood. Mom is 100% Czech.

Ah, very quick and ker-rect!

Now, NM has chile chocolate (red chile in chocolate bars), chile jam (red or green of course) chile sprinkled over fresh fruit, and many other chile desserts, tho biscochitos (no chile) is still the "official" endorsed dessert...

You'd think NJ being the Garden State, they would "pick" something from the garden, and make a nice dessert.

The area of Jersey where we live,ages ago used to have Blueberry Farms...still find them growing wild in woods and such,,,Yes,I'd agree, it must be something with our Unofficial frit, the blueberry!!!

Smith Island Cake is a beautiful dessert. I've baked it before and it was an experience like no other. Very fun to make, though time consuming. Definitely worth it, as it's delicious!

There was actually a pretty hot debate in the Florida Legislature when the state dessert was being considered (and I am not making this up — remember, this is Florida). Legislators from the southern part of the state favored key lime pie, while those from the northern part of the state wanted pecan pie to be the official desert. The argument that key lime pie is a uniquely Florida invention ultimately won the day.

PieBakerM, you must have the patience of Job to bake that cake. 


I've ordered that cake from the 'old ladies' on Smith Island ($50 delivered) and purchased a small 2-serving cake from Giant Food ($10).  The best one I ever had was a full sized one for $12.99 from BJ's Warehouse.  Ironically, the one from BJ's cames from a bakery in Massachusettes. " />" />" />

eruby - Yes, took me about 3-4 hours to bake & ice the cake. I didn't have 8 cake pans lying around, that was the bottleneck.
 
I believe Pennsylvania does not have an official state dessert. Though there are desserts known to the state such as the banana split, shoofly pie, gobs (also known as whoopie pies), and the chocolate chip cookie.

Ohio is the buckeye candy which is peanut butter dipped in chocolate.  Boring.  I believe the banana split is PA's state dessert, concocted in Latrobe, PA.
