    o perhaps i should have mentioned..the hostess is a kick ass cake decorator and baker....no cakes...cookies....we are tossing around cookies and a german chocolate pie...black forest cake ....if i could find good cherries...but all i can find are chilean cherries....i would need dark or sour....so that is out....

    keep thinking...the apple squares are too plain...i want to impress (dont we all?)

    I'll just interject that appearances can be deceiving, it's always about the taste and how it hits the buds. ;)

    I must say if I could find, the best thing I remember from growing up in a German-Lutheran town was 'German Chocolate Chip Cookies', damn they rocked. Even now, I drool. Crispy on outside, good chew from middle. Coconut indeed. Yet, both semi-sweet and milk chocolate. Of course German chocolate too. Oh man!
