“Cool Ideas Cook Book” subtitled “From Pillsbury’s Best Bake-Off Collection and the Ann Pillsbury’s Recipe Exchange.” Published by Pillsbury Mills, Inc., I am guessing it was about 1958 as the newest Bake-Off recipe in the cook book is from the 8th contest which was held in 1957. The cook booklet is a soft cover (with 5 holes for inserting in a binder) measuring 6 x 9 inches with 32 pages. It is in very good gently used condition with slight wear to the covers, the pages are clean and unmarked except for a couple of notations written on the inside of the front cover.


The long, hot days of summer seem to wilt most people and appetites lag. A frequent question is “What desserts can I serve my family in the summertime that will really interest them?” You’ll find the answers in this little cookbooklet along with baking and freezing tips, picnic suggestions and cool drinks. Some of the recipes are from Pillsbury, and several are winning recipes from Pillsbury Bake-Off contests, going up to the 8th contest. Lots of pies (with how to make a crust tips), some cakes, even Baked Alaska – all refreshingly light and flavorful, perfect for a summertime supper!!
