Mary Alden's Cookbook for Children (1956)

Posted Oct 22 2008 4:25pm

It's a well known fact. I'm a complete sucker for vintage cookbooks. This particular vintage cookbook drew me in with the cute little girl on the front. I mean, how could anyone possible resist that face? Or those huge blue eyes?

And who can resist a homemade cake with bubble gum pink frosting? Not me. I'd have bought this cookbook even if the recipes inside looked like they tasted terrible. I like the cover that much. Much to my delight though, there are also wonderful recipes and more cute graphics inside. Jewel Cookies, anyone?

Oh my, gumdrops on oatmeal cookies. I think I just might need to try that recipe. After all, it would not be socially responsible of me to share recipes without trying them out first. It just wouldn't be morally right to provide untested and unproven recipes to my readers, would it? Yeah, something like that. So, who's up for some Hawaiian Hulas?

These cookies sound delicious. I'll eat anything with coconut in it. And this next recipe for Pudding Patties has butterscotch pudding in it. How can you possibly go wrong with oatmeal and butterscotch? I don't really think you can.

And since this is a cookbook for children. I bet my girls could make me a batch of these cookies.

Which one of these recipes should I ask my girls to make for me? Leave me a comment.
