Show & Tell Friday for November 13

For Show & Tell today, I thought I would share one of my vintage cookbooklets. This is a Betty Crocker booklet from 1958 -- can that possibly be 51 years ago! -- titled Country Kitchen Cookies. I love the front cover and the little sampler on the stovetop encouraging the cook to "Bake a batch of happiness."

The recipes in this book mostly use mixes like gingerbread, macaroons, brownies, and date bars to create new cookie variations. This page has suggestions for sharing a cookie gift.

Lunch box treats and after-school treats are featured here. Those mint brownies sound good!

"Coffee time is cookie time" and "Cookies make the party!" How inventive those Betty Crocker home economists were!

Two pages of cookies for kids to make.

And my favorite -- Trim-the-Tree Cookies! Love the artwork on this page.

You may see this again on my Christmas blog!

And that's my simple Show & Tell for today. To see what others have shared for Show & Tell Friday, head on over to My Romantic Home.

Happy Show & Tell Friday!
