    Small world Kevin. I have this cookbook. Mom got it for me when I was just a kid. Her favorite recipe was the Mincemeat Cookies, mine is the peanut butter cookies.

      Wow, Elizabeth, neat to hear! If you make the breakfast cake and could take a photo and email it to me for posting, that’d be awesome!

    Hi Kevin, I purchased this cook book back in the mid ’70’s on a school field trip to Pennsylvania. I purchased their potato and raisin bread, some blueberry jam for the long ride home. I paid .50 cents for it and still use it up to today…also I have a few more of their cook books:
    Best-Loved Pennsylvania Dutch Recipes including Many of the Amish – .69 cents
    Pennsylvania Dutch traditional recipes for Pies & Pastries – .39 cents
    Pennsylvania Dutch Cookbook fine old recipes – Made famous by the early Dutch Settlers in Pennsylvania – .69 cents
    The Amish Homestead Cookbook – .50 cents
    I have treasured these books for nearly 40 years, since-which I became a certified chef.

    Looking for a recipe for a breakfast item my husbands family calls snorkels. Thin pancake batter chopped into pieces and salted served with syrup.
