At this time of year, Austin bakeries and ice cream shops are simply bursting with both peppermint and eggnog flavored sweets. You'll also find Christmas cookies galore along with plenty of seasonal cupcakes, but there are also cranberry blondies, cream puffs filled with gingerbread cream, and boozy ice cream.
'Cow Tipping Creamery' on Serious Eats
Cow Tipping Creamery is a turquoise gem in a food trailer park near Austin's University of Texas. The menu is a force to be reckoned with, and peanut butter sauce has to be one of the most ordinary things on it. You're more likely to find Dr. Pepper cherry sauce and blood orange olive oil and champagne marshmallows and honey dust—all made from scratch by Tim and Corey Sorenson.
