Someday I'll perhaps cook something from this book. It belonged to my grandmother and is inscribed with her name and the date - Dec 1928. I'm not really sure what this book was doing during the past 40 years - my aunt gave it to me a couple of years ago and my grandmother died in the early 1970's. ( )

I just have a soft spot in my heart for this old-fashioned book, which my mother had. As a teen, I made sugar cookies nearly every day for my two brothers and sister, using many of the variations. How hard it was to chose which one! I used Blue Bonnet margarine, which Mother bought by the box from Iowa. Margarine sold in Minnesota could not have added color, thanks to the influence of the dairy industry. Each pound came in a white chunk, like lard, with a pellet of coloring that you were supposed to mash into the margarine. We never had the patience. Blue Bonnet came already colored and wrapped in foil, four sticks to the pound, and that was fine by us.
