Quote:You'd have thought - with all the anti-German sentiment in the US at that time - that the recipe would have been renamed or deleted from the cookbook altogether! I wonder if you'd start seeing that happen in editions revised in 1944, 1945, or 1946.

Quote:THE VERY IDEA! Serve this simple salad plate anytime between 2 and 5 in the afternoon, on any day, from the First of May, to the end of September. It's coolly refreshing and gay.
Quote:SMART SERVICE: Make round three-decker sandwiches, using chicken salad and olive-nut spread for fillings. Frost with cream cheese softened with top milk.(?*)
Quote:BE PREPARED! Stock refrigerator with beverages; fill freezing trays with lush fruit salad ahead of time; and line up favorite sandwich makings. Put on the coffee and stand by for the raid!

Here are the scans of my 1943 BH&G cookbook. I don't know if they'll print out to the size needed for the book. Maybe, Karl, our in-house I.T. tech
can figure that out. If I can be of any further help, please let me know.

Hi, JackieBaby!!!!Thanks for signing on! As one of the administrators of this board, let me extend to you a warm and heartyI invite you to check out the rest of the board. You'll find many interesting forums and discussion threads on the TV series Homerfront, as well as, that dynamic era of the 1940s, in general. We are a bit of a quirky group, but quite friendly. Some of our discussions relating to certain topics of the '40s will, no doubt, elicit a few giggles - or grimaces, as the case may be. Please feel free to make any contributions in any of the forums/discussions on the main menu.After reading your post, I wanted to help you with your request. To that end, I dug out my copy of the 1943 BH&G Cookbook and found the recipe you are searching for. Here is the sugar cookie recipe, transcribed as I found it in Chapter "F" Pg. 22, under the Rolled Cookies heading:Old-Fashioned Sugar Cookies(Chill dough before rolling. Lift with spatula to keep shape.)1/2 cup shortening1 cup sugar1 egg3 cups flour1/4 teaspoon salt3 teaspoons baking powder1/2 cup milk1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract"THOROUGHLY CREAM SHORTENING and sugar; add egg and beat well. Add sifted dry ingredients alternately with milk and vanilla extract; mix thoroughly. Roll 1/8th inch thick on lightly floured surface. Cut with floured cookie cutter; sprinkle with sugar, if desired. Bake on greased cookie sheet in moderate oven (375 degrees) about 15 minutes. Makes 3 dozen cookies. These may be decorated before baking."I hope this helps you out. Enjoy your day!Steve
