Cooking With Confidence [No. 10759 B]

no preview available


The front panel is yellow 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 apricot pineapple pie. At the very bottom is a stamped identification: "No. 10759 B." The back panel is the same yellow sheet of paper, with recipes for Finette's party cake, Finette's party icing and Spry pan-coat. At the very bottom there should be a coupon form to be filled in with name and address, but this has been cut out. The inside has two panels. The left panel has recipes for Spry pie crust and for veal birds, and the right panel has recipes for bran nut muffins and lovers' knots, all made using Spry vegetable shortening.
