I usually prefer to make a desert, or cookie, but if anyone has a suggestion for something that is a really good German dish, even if not a desert, I'd love to get some suggestions.

List of German dishes - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It's for a party, so there is no required serving size. It will simply go in the dining room with all the other food. I think a cake, or cookies, would be easier, as I don't need to worry about keeping it warm.

The Quarkbällchen sounds great! Can I just use a Farmers cheese? I don't think I've ever seen any Quark cheese around here before.

Cream cheese is about as close as it gets to Quark.
According to Cooks Thesaurus.
quark = quark-curd = topfen = quarg = curd-cheese Notes: This versatile fresh cheese resembles soft cream cheese. Germans (who call is quark) and Austrians (who call it topfen) use it to make everything from cheesecake to gravy. To make your own: Combine one quart whole milk with 1/2 cup buttermilk in a clean container, cover, and let the mixture stand at room temperature for two days. Gently cook the mixture for about 30 minutes. It's done when the curd has thickened slightly and begun to separate from the whey. Let it cool and pour it into a colander lined with several folds of cheesecloth. Put the colander into a larger container, wrap with plastic, and let it drain overnight in the refrigerator until the quark is reduced to the consistency of yogurt. Makes about 1 cup. Substitutes: fromage frais (very similar) OR yogurt cheese (more acidic) OR two parts ricotta cheese and one part sour cream OR strained cottage cheese OR mascarpone
