Betty Crocker 1950s Recipe Cards

14742787_00_b_2

The 1950s are held up at the gold age in home-making and in the USA, Betty Crocker is an icon of good housekeeping and home cooking. Of course, she is entirely fictitious, invented to sell more products, but her image remains a strong one in America.

The Betty Crocker Recipe Card set contains 55 recipe cards taken from her 1950 edition of the Betty Crocker Picture Cook Book. All-American favourites here include Fluffy Pancakes and Blueberry Pie, Pigs in Blankets and Pioneer Macaroni and Cheese. Presumably there will be a recipe for apple pie in there too.

The set costs $16.95 (just over £8) from the Urban Outfitters USA website.
