Suzie Ford: From 2nd Place Pie to Transparent Pie Cookies at BakeCamp LA
BakeCamp LA is just around the corner, and we're thrilled to introduce you to one of the star bakers who will be joining us during Weekend 1 in Hollywood on October 7th. Meet Suzie Ford, the creative mind behind 2nd Place Pie, a small batch bakery in Los Angeles. Suzie is bringing her unique twist to the world of cookies with her delicious Transparent Pie Cookies, a recipe rooted in her family's heritage from Maysville, Kentucky.
Transparent Pie Cookies: A Sweet Family Tradition
Transparent Pie Cookies are the delightful creation of Suzie Ford, inspired by her family's treasured recipe for Transparent Pie. This pie, originating from Maysville, Kentucky, is a caramelized honey delicacy that has been passed down through generations. Suzie decided to take this beloved family recipe and transform it into a delectable cookie format.
These cookies are nothing short of extraordinary. Crafted with love and precision, they start with a hand-rolled, flaky pastry crust that boasts the rich, buttery goodness that can only come from real butter. The magic happens when this crust encases a heavenly caramel honey filling that creates a perfectly sweet, custard-like center. Transparent Pie Cookies offer a taste experience like no other – a harmonious blend of tradition and innovation.
The Origin of 2nd Place Pie:
The name "2nd Place Pie" carries an intriguing backstory that showcases Suzie's impressive baking talents. In 2014, Suzie participated in a local pie bake-off in Brooklyn, New York, competing against 35 other pies. Despite the tough competition, Suzie's pie earned the coveted 2nd place spot, a testament to her incredible skills and dedication to her craft.
But Suzie's success didn't stop there. In 2015, she returned to the same competition, and once again, her pie secured a 2nd place win. It's almost as if winning 2nd place was meant to be for Suzie, and she has since embraced the name "2nd Place Pie" as a symbol of her unwavering commitment to creating exceptional baked goods.
