This wonderful cookbook was produced to celebrate not only the 20th anniversary of Spry shortening, but to also introduce the new red and white label, which had formerly been green and cream. Spry vegetable shortening was introduced in 1936 by the Lever Brothers, now Unilever. Spry was produced to rival Procter & Gamble's Crisco. The daytime radio show "Aunt Jenny's Real Life Stories" endorsed Spry from 1937 to 1956. The show featured the character Aunt Jenny, a kindly housewife who shared tales while whipping up recipes that always featured Spry shortening. "Pure Vegetable Shortening For All Frying Cakes Pastry Biscuits Pies". The cook book covers lots of old and new favorite recipes all using Spry shortening: Cakes, Frostings, Pies, Cookies, Breads, Fried Foods, and Main Dishes. The cookbook contains 25 pages and has a copyright of 1955. The book is in very good condition with no tears or stains. There is some minor discoloration on the gold bands on the front cover.
