Dessert: Sopapillas with Spiced Honey

Cap off his Father's Day menu with a treat that's sweet and spicy, just like Dad. Fry up a batch of the Mexican donut recipe, then drizzle with hot honey that's aptly named due to a pinch of crushed red pepper. This dessert makes 36 sopapillas, enough for you and Dad (OK, maybe just Dad—they're that good!) to snack on all day.
