Three-fourths of a century . . . pioneering, blazing new trails, crossing new frontiers . . . dedicated to the service of womankind. * * * So it is that the Pillsbury emblem has become the symbol of a famous family of fine foods . . . respected and handed down proudly from mothers to daughters.”
This soft cover cookbook is copyright in 1944 by Pillsbury Mills, Inc., Minneapolis, Minn. C.A. Pillsbury and Co. was founded in 1872 by Charles Alfred Pillsbury and his Uncle John S. Pillsbury. In 1935 it was incorporated as the Pillsbury Flour Mills Company. In 1949 the company introduced a national baking competition known as The Pillsbury Bake-Off and was nationally broadcast on CBS television for quite a few years. The Pillsbury Bake-Off Cookbooks are highly sought after by cookbook collectors.
Two of the most famous Pillsbury food brands were created by Leo Burnett, the Pillsbury Doughboy and the Jolly Green Giant.

This little boy grew up in the 1950's and I can remember my mom always was using a Betty Crocker Cookbook or a Pillsbury Cookbook and making some desserts I can only dream about enjoying again.
