Grand Marnier Souffles

Souffles are one of my very favorite desserts.  I love that they are so light and not overly sweet.  This Grand Marnier souffle recipe is seriously no fail, and they are so impressive.  Keep in mind that these need to be served IMMEDIATELY.  They will start deflating the moment you take them out, so get everything ready.  Funny story, but the only time that my pregnancy hormones got too crazy was when I was making souffles one night.  When they were in the oven, my husband told me he was going to go for a run.  I became hysterical and kept obnoxiously sobbing that they were “á la minute.” Every pregnant lady is allowed at least one moment of unprovoked hysterics, right?

For a dinner party you can get away with making a super simple dinner, because these babies are a showstopper and everyone is always so impressed. The pictures I posted don’t even do them justice. The souffles had already started to fall by the time I got my camera out.  These are so tasty that I really enjoy them plain. If I’m feeling fancy, I like to pour creme anglaise or chocolate ganache over top.  Crushed cookies on the bottom of the ramekin add a little crunchy texture.
