This is my all time favorite holiday cookie book... It might be my favorite cooking/baking book in general. I love how ridiculous and terribly outdated some of the cookies are... it's so bad sometimes that it's charming. This book is best used for inspiration, and it's almost always a good idea to find an updated recipe elsewhere that'll have a more delicious and authentic outcome than Betty could offer, but the contents are so prolific that it just can't be beat. It's like an encyclopedia of cookies compiled by an insane Grandma who always meant well. This book reminds me of oleo, believing in Santa, and a time when I was too innocent to notice when a cookie was clearly shaped like a penis. ( )

This book is a keeper for anyone who loves homemade cookies....
or loves looking at them!

Produced in 2002, it is a facsimile edition of a General Mills 1963 release.
It really is a heritage cookbook (original pictures and recipes), paying tribute to an era.

The reader can feel free to modify according to today's ingredients and eating patterns. ( )

My mother had the original 1963 version of this book, I swiped it from her cookbook shelf when I left home in 1972, and I used it so much over the years that the covers fell off and half the pages fell out. I'm delighted to find that it's been reissued, and I can't wait to start baking my favorite cookies again. ( )
