The front panel is green with the title at top printed in black and a row of running chefs beneath that. There are two recipes on the front panel, one for Spry pastry mix, and one for individual pecan pies. At the very bottom is a stamped identification: "No. 28967 B." The back panel is the same green sheet of paper, with recipes for pan-fried fish fillets, country-fried steak, and spry pan-coat. At the very bottom is a coupon form to be filled in with name and address. This also is stamped with "No. 28967 B." The inside has two panels. The left panel has recipes for Spry pie crust and strawberry meringue cake, and the right panel has recipes for cheese puffs with creamed vegetables, and gingersnaps, all made using Spry vegetable shortening.
