This is a first trade edition of "Betty Crocker's Baking Classics" (The Best Gold Medal Flour Recipes of 100 Years). Copyright 1979 by General Mills, Inc., published by Random House, Inc. This cookbook is in very good condition. The book jacket has some wear on it, no major flaws & it was not price clipped. There are included recipes which were popular advertising features of the early 1900's, during the Depression & in the 1950's. There are also some great recipes from as early as 1880 (but rewritten in the contemporary Betty Crocker style.) There are 112 pages and many, many delectable color photos. Note: This cook book was originally published in 1971 by General Mills as the Gold Medal Century of Success Cookbook & distributed in response to Gold Medal flour offers. This is the first edition to be published & sold in bookstores. This would be a perfect book to make your Christmas and Valentine's goodies from.
