It sounds crazy, but it's true: Some people are, like, friends with their in-laws. Some people, in fact, like their in-laws enough to collaborate with them and maybe even start a little business. So it is for the P and the S in cookie catering company P.S. Sweets: Paula Hahn and her daughter-in-law, Sofia Varanka. Four years ago, the two women started decorating cookies for First Friday open houses at Varanka's high-end furniture outfit, Hudson Homes. When Hudson moved, cookie addicts on the West Side rioted (well, they called and they e-mailed), and the oven stayed on. There's no storefront (though First Friday gallerygoers have been seen from time to time with frosting around their mouths after finding a pop-up iteration of P.S.), and you'll need a few friends if you want cookies because you order them by the dozen (and order them at least four days ahead). Don't have friends? Go where there are people and pop open a box of P.S.'s elaborately iced sugar cookies. The frosting designs would make Martha Stewart hang up her pastry bag if she saw them, and the dough can be ordered with flavors, including lemon, mojito, chocolate espresso and chai. Now you have friends.
