I always knew cool weather was here when my mom lugged out this cookbook.  It’s called “Betty Crocker’s New Picture Cook Book” and it was published in 1961. I remember looking through the pictures as it sat on the table while she cooked.  Our copy was very “loved” with chocolate fingerprints and cherry filling spots. But..if you run into a copy that is in good condition, they sell between $20.00-115.00 on Ebay.  The early printings and editions bring the higher prices.

Bon Appetit!

Come back tomorrow for some great “treasure stories” on Flippin’ Friday! This week, one lucky commenter will WIN a custom felted doll (you decide what she makes) from Sarah’s Plain and Small Creations. Whoo-hoo!

    I’ll have to check my moms cookbooks, I’m sure she has this one!

    My mom had the ring-bound binder Betty Crocker’s Cookbook from 1969 (a wedding present) and I used to love to pore through it as a kid. I found a hardback version in the late 90’s and got it for myself. It looks like they go for pretty good money now, too.

    I also got a Betty Crocker Cooky Book at the flea market this summer (a later printing than the original) and the pictures in that one are also a lot of fun to look at. There’s just something about those old cookbooks!
