Dad food means good food, and lots of it. But Father’s Day is not a day for filling him up with froufrou desserts or diet nibbles. Nope, Dad deserves something at the end of his meal that’s as fearless and heroic, as bold and as sweet, as he is. So make him one of these five robust Father’s Day desserts. He will thank you—and maybe, just maybe, save you a bite.

Cheesecake with honey bourbon sauce
Store-bought cheesecake gets a bold twist with bourbon and honey flavors. Heat 1 cup of packed light brown sugar, 1/2 cup of butter and 3 tablespoons each of heavy cream and honey bourbon (or your favorite bourbon plus 1 teaspoon of honey) over low heat in small pan until sugar is dissolved. Drizzle over slices of cheesecake before serving.
