1. Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie
Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie ::: only 5 ingredients!
You're going to notice a trend here. My husband is an ice cream lover. Is yours, too? You only need 5 ingredients to make this luscious pie.

2. Brown Butter and Vanilla Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Do you find that men are generally bigger fans of oatmeal raisin cookies? It's definitely the case with my dad and my husband. These are so delicious, though, that I actually find myself craving them. That says a lot coming from a chocolate chip girl.

3. Guinness-Vanilla Bean Frosted Mocha Brownies

I mean, there's beer in here. Do I need to say more?

4. Cherry Pie Bars

Cookie, meet cherry pie. Live happily ever after. Yeah, if your dad or husband is a pie-lover, but you're not up for making and rolling the crust, make these.

5. Favorite Carrot Cake

My husband is not a big cake person...but this one, he LOVES! It's also one of Jack's favorites. Maybe because the frosting "tastes like cheesecake" according to Mr. E. Hey, you can also count it as a serving of veggies.

6. Houston Astros Cookies
Houston Astros Decorated Cookies: Bregman Stare, Hugs for Homers, I Literally Love Justin Verlander, Springer Dinger, Astros Rainbow Jersey
OK...these are a labor of love, but if you have an Astros fan in your family, they're going to be so worth the work. If your dad is not an Astros fan, well, he should be. ;)

7. Chocolate Hazelnut Caramel Ice Cream Pie
Chocolate Hazelnut Caramel Ice Cream Pie : the easiest, most delicious dessert you'll make all summer!
Yep. Another ice cream pie. (Another EASY ice cream pie.) It's a winner, for sure!

8. Not-So-Key-Lime Pie

A key lime pie made WITHOUT key limes. It's true. It's also delicious.

9. Peanut Butter Swirl Chocolate Chip Blondies

Chocolate + Peanut Butter is always a huge hit with my guys. These blondies are rich and creamy...truly decadent.

10. Classic Chocolate Chip Blondies

If your dad is a fan of blondies without the peanut butter, this recipe is the best I've ever made. Make them in a disposable pan, tie with a big ribbon, and give to your dad on Father's Day. Homemade gifts are the best, right? Plus, he might share.

11. Mocha Toffee Crunch Terrine

Sounds fancy, but it's another ice cream-based dessert that is a cinch to make. I first made this over 10 years ago, and it's still on Mr. E's "favorites" list.

12. Blueberry Cheesecake Pie
Desserts for Dudes: blueberry cheesecake pie ::: bake at 350 blog
This dessert combines two of my husband's favorite desserts: cheesecake and fruit pie. The gingersnap crust makes is absolutely irresistible.

What are you making for Dad this Sunday?
