Long-time friend (note: never call a woman an “old” friend…) and excellent baker Betsy Cohen is now writing a food blog. It’s all about desserts, because, as she writes, she always considers desserts first.
Cohen, of Palm Beach Gardens, won a spot in one of the cookie contests when I was at The Post for her lovely Nana’s Butter Cookies. Rich with butter and perfectly baked, these jewel-like jelly-filled cookies delighted the judges.
Cohen’s blog is all about the recipes she makes for her family, and as a former professional baker, baked for others Her chatty and friendly style encourages bakers to jump in and get sweet with things like the Pecan Caramel Tart – a perfect Thanksgiving Day recipe, or Ginger Scones, or a good banana bread with pecans.
It’s a work in progress, but Cohen already has a solid foundation of mouth-watering recipes and step-by-step photos in well organized posts. Readers can email her with questions, and she’ll answer, too. We’re keen on those who share their expertise, so hats off to Cohen for a terrific start of something sweet.
