German chocolate cakes remind me of my late father. Growing up we would rarely go out for dinner but when we did he would order German chocolate cake for dessert. My mom wasn’t much of a baker so the only time he could get his fix was eating out. It’s been fourteen years since my dad passed away and not a day goes by without me thinking of him. I love to share memories of my dad with my daughter and I can’t think of a better way to share a memory than with a cookie.
