I have the fortune of belonging to a wonderful group on Facebook called Cooking Vintage. This community of collectors and cooks proudly shares and discusses vintage recipes and books, much to the delight of us all.
One day a woman posted about how much she loved the Pillsbury Bake-Off books. I jumped into the conversation – I also loved these books and was looking for more on my regular journeys to the antique stores. I had exactly 3 of them – the 4th, 5th, and 6th versions. But oh… I definitely wanted more.
Shortly after stating as much, two women in the group reached out to me – in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, and because they had so much overflow, they were going to gift me all of their duplicates. JOY!
So there they are – my total collection in all it’s floury recipe glory.
And I’m challenging myself to bake one recipe out of each of them, in order.
One thing I’ve noticed over a few years of cooking from these books is that they’re little time capsules into our kitchens. I’m looking forward to seeing how these recipes progress and change over the years.
Stay tuned to the main challenge page for recipes and adventures as I have them!
