Betty Crocker Picture Cooky Book - 1948 Booklet Edition
A full cooky jar makes a home "homey."
No one has helped more mainstream home cooks and bakers throughout the 20th century than Betty Crocker! A go-to authority on kitchen crowd-pleasers for ten decades, Betty has been the reliable recipe provider for millions of meals served every day across the country. It is with that love and enthusiasm that we are very excited to offer this 1948 publication of the Betty Crocker Picture Cooky Book. Stuffed to the gills with every type of cookie recipe you can imagine, this book in great detail, describes the myriad of ways you can combine ingredients to create unique cookies that everyone will love. All the classics are included here along with some old-timey favorites from the 1800s, international delights from around the world, and a vast variety of cookies intended especially for holiday baking.
Featuring over 130 recipes spanning 44 pages, this booklet includes plenty of helpful tips, step-by-step instructions, illustrations, and guidance along the way to ensure success with each and every baking endeavor. Presented in the same style as the Betty Crocker Picture Cook Book, which would follow in 1950, this booklet represents not only classic baking recipes that have withstood the test of time and appetite but also all the nostalgic sentimentality of baking with our moms and grandmothers in days past.

In lovely vintage condition, this booklet is in clean and bright condition. There are no coking spots or stains or markings of any kind. A marvel given the fact that it is almost 80 years old! The seam holding the front and back cover together in the spine area has come apart at the top section - measuring a 1/12" inch tear near the top staple. But the booklet itself is in very good condition and this tear does not affect the interior pages nor the ability to flip through the pages in any way as every page is still firmly attached via the staples.
Measures 6" inches (width)x 9.5" inches (length)
