Father's Day Treats He'll Actually Like (Think Carrot Cheesecake!)
This Father's Day, bake Dad a few batches of the good stuff — like doughnuts, chocolate chip cookies, bacon-and-cheddar pastries and more from Food Network.
Contrary to popular belief, not every dad turns into a hardcore tie collector or grilling aficionado on Father’s Day. Some guys just want to be appreciated, indulged and subtly reminded about how they’re No. 1. And what better way to say, “Dad, you’re the best” than by baking up a homemade sweet or savory treat? We’ve rounded up some can’t-miss ideas for the man in your life.
Carrot Cake or Cheesecake—or Both?
It isn’t fair to ask Dad to choose between his two favorites on Father’s Day, and now he won’t have to. Combining the best parts of two beloved desserts, tender carrot cake is crowned with a halo of tangy cheesecake in this showstopping mash-up.

Chocolate Chip Cookies His Way
How do you make Dad’s perfect cookies? It depends on how he likes ‘em! We tweaked the ingredients and baking methods of our classic recipe to make cookies that ranged from soft and chewy to thin and crispy and everything in between.
Doughnut Forget Who’s No. 1
Dads and doughnuts just go together. Instead of picking up another box of the same old dozen, why not whip up a batch that’s bursting with fresh-from-the-fryer goodness? These golden pillows of dough are bathed in irresistible blend of cinnamon and sugar before getting gobbled up.
He’s On a Roll
These pastries may look like ordinary sweet buns, but they’re decidedly manlier. Instead of the standard sugar and spice, we’ve given them a savory spin with flavors like Garlic, Cheese and Chive and Everything Seed (reminiscent of everything bagels).
