Happy Valentine's Day, folks! In case you missed them, here are all of the totally sweet desserts we featured last week: Shuna Lydon’s Rose Petal–Vanilla Bean Shortbread We'd be thrilled to receive a box of these floral and crumbly cookies in place of the run-of-the-mill bouquet. Michael Schwartz’s Meyer Lemon Pudding Cake This lofty, soufflé-like treat is a cinch to prepare, which means you can spend more time with your special someone. Mike Andrzejewski's Chocolate Rice Pudding with Chile Fudge Sauce A comforting and familiar dish, spiked with some surprising heat. Perfect for the Valentine who's weary of predictably precious chocolate desserts. Chris Lusk's Satsuma Pot-de-Crème This unusual custard gets its tang from Louisianan and Japanese ingredients. Melissa Close-Hart's Molasses Crème Brûlée A Valentine's Day standard, with soul. Neil Kleinberg's Milk Chocolate Soufflé with Roasted Banana-Caramel Sauce Even the most chocolate-fatigued sweethearts will be seduced by this delicious dessert from Clinton St. Baking Co.
