Believe it or not, according to the Eat This, Not That website, Washingtonians prefer a delicious bowl of french onion soup. This is appropriate, since the official state vegetable is the Walla Walla sweet onion. There's also a baseball team known as the Walla Walla Sweets. Who knew?

After a quick Google search, Taste of Home had something sweet for the best Christmas recipe for Washington.

It was always a special treat when my mom got out her Christmas cookie recipe book. She had a special spritz cookie press and that was serious business. We knew there was going to be a lot of cookies coming in the following days. Mom baked, oatmeal, gingerbread, and spritz cookies. We had Christmas cookies for days and of course, so did the neighbors. The cookies were given as gifts.
