What will your New Year’s resolution be? If you’re like 95 percent of the world, losing weight will be high on the list. Pack the gym, cut the carbs, dust off the Shake-Weight. It’s time to get fit.
But not now! It’s the holiday season, so why not live it up before cupcakes, pies and ice cream become strictly forbidden? Here are seven Austin desserts to try before your New Year’s resolution kicks in.
1/ Quack’s 43rd Street Bakery: Shortbread Cookies
With love and respect to Austin’s vastly exploding food scene, there’s something special about this class neighborhood bakery in Hyde Park. And while nearly everything at Quack’s is on point, their shortbread cookies bring special warmth to my heart. Crispy without being brittle, flaky and beautifully decorated, these tiny treats will brighten your holiday.
