Better Homes and Gardens Cookies & Candies 1973


Just in time for the upcoming holidays I've added another Cookie and Candy cookbook to Books, Books & More - Adopt a Book and the price is only $2.00 plus shipping.  This is a must have for goodie making.

Happiness is a jar full of these sweet goodies waiting for you to come home from work or school. After mastering a few techniques, happiness will be the pride of serving your own homemade treats to family and friends. All of the recipes included within this book have been tested and retested in the BH&G Test Kitchen to develop the best balance of ingredients and standard methods. To insure success at home, measure all the ingredients carefully and follow mixing directions to the letter. For best results always use all-purpose flour that has been sifted before measuring, and also remember that softened butter or margarine creams best. Using the tips within this book you'll soon be making your own Glazed Lebkuchen and Springerle, Spicy Hermits and Maple Nut Chews, or maybe you would rather make candies such as Coconut Macaroons and Pecan Tassies. All are simple and delicious.

This hardback was copyright 1966 with this copy being a 10th print dating 1973. It measures 10 1/4 x 7 3/4 x 1/4 (approx.) and contains 90 pages packed with delicious sweet goodies. On a scale of 1 - 10 with 10 being 'like new' I rate this copy a 7+. The outside cover shows slight shelf wear and there is some yellowing of the inside pages. This book has been used but is still in great condition.
