Over a Year ago while Abbey and I were out at a local estate sale ..we found 2 big wood Recipe boxes.. both filled to the brim with hand written recipes and recipes clipped from food boxes, wrappers, newspaper clippings and the like.
We can't pass up recipe boxes . .. and a few over the years have yielded some pretty unsavory recipes that caused us to scratch our head and ask ... Really ?
Then Other recipe boxes such as these ..just made you sit down and grow hungrier by the minute from the pot roast, to the Chili ..and of course the cookies.
Before we could go through one of the recipe boxes though we had to pull it out from underneath my sewing machine pedal .. I sit at a large work table to sew that is rather tall .. Great for cutting fabrics and working on projects because your not constantly bending over and getting a back or neck ache but a little odd for reaching the foot pedal of the sewing machine so I quickly remedied the long reach by placing the large wood recipe box just in the perfect spot under the table and placing my foot pedal on it well over a year ago..LOL ! Hey whatever works..as long as my leg is now comfy when sewing.
So This week we reminisced through those old recipes and Found 5 Vintage Cookie Recipes that we thought had charming names or some fun ingredients or fun designs ... to share with you all.
Feel free to save them and print them out. I have provided a cute Page Print out ..or below each page is the original recipe as it was found in the recipe box which can also be saved and printed easily.
