  1. The illustrations in this post are especially nice -- I love the very first one! I bet the recipes are still good too, though I wonder about using margarine for flaky pastry.

    1. I'm sure we could swap out the margarine for butter (or lard) Mae.

  2. Such wonderful illustrations! I do think the cover looks very familiar though. I'll have to dig through some of mother's recipe books and boxes to see what I can find.

  4. Years ago, I would always keep the empty Fleischmann's yeast packages for the recipes that were on them. i have always had good luck following them. There is nothing like the aroma of fresh-baked bread.

  21. I love danish pastries. Since I love danish and baked goods I had to try it. I visited on a Sunday and had a blackberry with custard danish that was excellent. It was very flaky and buttery.
