I don’t think there is a better dessert known to man than a homemade German Chocolate Cake. And there isn’t a person this side of glory that makes a better one than Juanita Young…my “Gaga”. I have so many childhood memories of my grandmother’s amazing meals and confections and many of them I now have made for my own family. One of my favorites is her German Chocolate Cake. It’s tried and true and it is the same cake I sell to my customers. It’s a true labor of love and I didn’t realize why she didn’t make it all of the time until I started making them. Whew! It is WORK.Gaga will be 82 years young this weekend and even though I’m miles and miles away she was on my mind and heart so I made these cookies. There are a few steps that may take some time but they can be done simultaneously. You can make the frosting while the cookies are chilling and baking. They aren’t as good as her German Chocolate Cake but I will be honest with you…They’re pretty close. 😉 I think she would be proud of me. Happy birthday Gaga! I love you!
