Betty Crocker's Cooky Book Jun 7, 2008
I have baked cookies from the recipes in this book for over 40 years and have given as gifts to friends and relatives at least 25 copies. The cookie recipes are classic and will tempt every cookie eater.
Love the Vintage Cooky Book! May 20, 2008
Betty Crocker's Cooky Book is wonderful. It is an exact replica of the same book I grew up on, making cookies with my mom at Christmas time. The recipes are great, and the pictures are all "vintage," reminiscent of the 60's. Some recipes are tried and true--absolutely wonderful and have been passed around at cookie exchanges for decades. The new one might have more updated pictures and a few new recipes, but this one from back when my mom was a new wife is a keepsake that you can share with your own kids when cookie baking time rolls around again in December.
The ABSOLUTE Best Cooky Book Ever! Mar 26, 2008
This is the best cookie cookbook there is. I have about 200 cookbooks and this is the one that I always come back to when I am looking to bake cookies. It is my favorite, as I am a child of the 60's. I received a copy for a wedding gift over 30 years ago, and it is falling apart. I purchased one for my daughter-in-law, and I will buy a couple of extras for the future brides of my other two sons. The pictures and the recipes bring back so many memories, and someday, I will make the cookie cottage that is pictured in the book. If you only buy one cookie book, make sure it is this one!!!
A Must Have and One to Hand Down Feb 8, 2008
In the 1960's this Betty Crocker Cookie Book was used weekly for my three children, guests, bringing baked goods, etc. Now, the children are grown, and my daughter longed for her mom's original Betty Crocker Cookie Book. Per her wish, I gave her the worn out copy with all the batter stains, and I bought the new one of this classic for myself. Regardless of what the internet can offer us on line, there's something special about this book with its full color illustrations of what each cookie should look like, its spiral bound pages , and its memories of my children's childhoods in the kitchen around momma! It's truly a generation to generation must have!
My mom and I fought over this book Jan 28, 2008
I grew up with this cookie cookbook, and when I first left home many years ago, my mom and I battled over who would get this book. She finally had the entire book color photo copied for me because she couldn't bear to part with it.
All I can say is, thank god it is back in print for new generations, and for family peace. The cookies are perfection and then some. The photos are terrific.
I now have a new copy, my beloved photo copy, and after I gave my mom a new copy, she finally turned over the original.
This is the definitive cookie cookbook of all time. Never leave home without one. Seriously.
