Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Butterscotch-potato chip balls

    • nadiam1000 on May 19, 2020

      These were good - nice sweet and salty combo. Definitely on the sweet side but once in a while I enjoy something with butterscotch chips (usually magic layer bars). I used sea salt Kettle Brand Chips.

  • Peanut butter-marshmallow Kix trees

    • sarahkalsbeek on December 31, 2021

      Yummy and cute and fun to make with my six-year-old! Kind of tricky to get a good tree shape. I used natural peanut butter because that's all I ever have in the house. The recipe explicitly states that you should not use natural peanut butter. But I always use natural peanut butter in baking, even when a recipe says not to, and never really have an issue. So these might not taste how they are supposed to, but we think they are tasty.

  • Sour cream jumbles

    • sarahkalsbeek on November 18, 2021

      These are delicious! Very soft and cakey. Vanilla comes through beautifully.

Publishers Text

This book takes recipes from vintage recipe booklets from the early to mid-20th century and recasts them as a contemporary baking cookbook with a cool, modern edge. The book is illustrated with images of vintage baking booklet art and photography of many of the modern versions of the recipes. Headnotes briefly describe the origins of the recipe, the booklet from which it came, and how the author perfected its modern makeover. This book upholds the delicious original recipes while also gently nudging them into the 21st century with modern flavors, textures, and techniques.
