Whenever your mother and grandmother were cooking, chances are Betty Crocker’s Picture Cook Book was the cookbook on the counter. It’s the best place to find those long-lost recipes you grew up with — the dishes you really loved and would like to enjoy again.
Betty Crocker’s Picture Cook Book showed them how to make a cake the very old-fashioned way, using the creaming method, which was the way cakes were made for hundreds of years. And then, on the next page, Betty Crocker showed them the “modern way” from scratch!
This very book showed them how to keep biscuits from overbrowning (page 66), make unforgettable rolled cookies (page 194), make a molded salad (page 348), and so much more!
One of the reasons why Betty Crocker’s Picture Cook Book is still a must-have after more than 50 years is that people are always saying it has the best recipes they’ve ever found!
