AUSTIN, TX -- Bluebonnets are the state flower for Texas and jalapeños are the state pepper, but what is the official dessert? You might be surprised that Texas doesn't have one.
Now, a group of school children are hoping to change that, by asking lawmakers to make the treat a state symbol. Today, the Administration Committee at the Capitol approved SCR 12, a bill that would designate the pecan pie as the official state pie of Texas. The bill will not be up for vote by the full Senate.
