This keepsake cookbook features fetching retro patterns and illustrations, luscious photography, an embossed foil cover, and – surprise! –a tiny, authentically vintage, booklet inside. Blue-ribbon recipes inspired by baking pamphlets from the 1920s to the 1960s are rendered with irresistible charm for modern tasks in this sweet package. Here are more than 50 cookies, pies, cakes, bars, and more, plus informative headnotes detailing the origins of each recipe and how they were tweaked into deliciousness. For home bakers, collectors of vintage cookbooks or kitchenware – really, anyone who loves beautiful, quirky gifts – this is a gem.

I want to curl up by a fire with this book. Jessie shares her love for ephemera and old baking pamphlets that inspired this unique beautiful book. I could eat her Vanilla Yogurt Coffee Cake in one sitting!
