February 13, 2017
Looking for a new dessert to make for your Valentine this year? Trust us, we love a warm chocolate cake as much as the next guy, but if you're looking to mix it up and veer into the unexpected, we've got the solution: Anita Lo's addictive pecan–salted butterscotch beignets. A dressed-up version of the New Orleans classic, the Beard Award–nominated chef's rendition features a rich, pecan-laced batter that's deep-fried to perfection and then piped with a homemade butterscotch sauce that melts in your mouth. Complex, sweet, and a little bit salty (just like love?), it's the perfect special-occasion treat. Get the recipe.
