Great meals made easy!
I have a dear friend whose favorite cake is German Chocolate. One day he shared with me fond memories of his mother making this cake for him each year on his birthday. It was a special treat for him and you could see in his eyes, as he told the story, that it meant a lot to him.
I knew I could never make the cake as good as his mother’s….somehow no one ever makes anything as good as your mom can…especially with the special ingredients of love and tradition. But I found this recipe and thought it might be a nice treat to remind him of those special birthdays. I gave him the cookies today and the broad smile, and look in his eyes, told me I had achieved my goal!
As with a German Chocolate cake, these cookies are far from low calorie, but they are so worth the indulgence!

Steps: To make the cookies
To make the topping:
*To toast the coconut and the pecans, put each on a separate cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Place in a 400°F oven for about 10 minutes. Stir once or twice during that time. When you can smell the pecans and about half of the coconut is becoming golden brown, they are done.
