Best (restaurant) desserts in Texas?

Which specific desserts are must-tries, in your opinion? I'm looking for down-home, fancy, nouveau, old-school—all types of desserts are welcome, but I'm especially interested in trying those sweets that you could only find in Texas, or the South more generally. Any part of the state: small towns, big cities, east, west, border . . .
I think Pecan Pie is a true Texas dessert. A truly good piece has lots of nuts and is sweet but not over the top. Now I'm hungry for pie!
Well, I do like the mammoth cake selection at La Duni in Dallas, but they're not very "Texan."
Honestly, you can't go wrong with a nice bourbon-pecan pie from HEB's Cental Market.
Though not "Southern", any of the cakes at La Duni
Pies at Celebration restaurant
Pecan pie from Whole Foods
Heaven and Hell cake at Stephen Pyles
Chocolate cake at Hibiscus
Key Lime Pie, if they have it, at Houstons restaurant
Cobblers at Dickey's or Sonny Bryan's
Some of these are not particularly "Southern", but are my favorites here in Dallas
