Expert Tips

"My grandmother happened to be German and she had the biggest sweet tooth of anyone I have ever known. She especially loved cookies. Every time I would visit, she always had a German Chocolate cake waiting for my arrival. I came up with this recipe for my love of my Oma and memories of her German Chocolate cake. If she were still with us, I know she would love these cookies!" Doreen Howarth
