Howdy! It’s the Fifth Annual Big Tex Choice Awards where State Fair of Texas vendors duke it out in a friendly food fight to determine the new best edibles.
Since 2005, creative cooks have whipped up wildly imaginative treats, and local, national, and international programs, publications, and websites have taken notice.
Leading off the finalists is:
Deep Fried Butter – 100% pure butter is whipped till light and fluffy, then specially sweetened with a choice of several flavors. The tantalizing mixture is surrounded by a special dough and quick fried. Served on a stick.
Read the complete list of finalists and descriptions in all their deep-fried glory, including "Fernie’s Deep Fried Peaches & Cream," "Fried Pecan Pie" and "Fried Peanut Butter Cup Macaroon." (via pegasusnews.com)
