This recipe was passed down from my grandpa's parents in Germany. Now it belongs to my family. It is very important to me because my dad means a lot to me and he whenever we make it he says it reminds him of his dad who is not here right now because he thinks about making it with him. My dad says I want you to enjoy this too but it is not the exact recipe because my dad doesn't want everyone to know about every thing because then it will not be his anymore.
