The contents include:
Drop, Bar, Refrigerator, Rolled, Pressed and Molded Cookies.
Holiday Cookies for Valentine's Day, St. Patricks's Day, Easter, Halloween and Christmas.
Cookies for Children, Lunchbox treats, Cookies that will travel, Heritage cookies, Cookies for Special Diets.
Brownies, Date Bars, Ginger Cookies, Cookies made from mixes
Teatime Cookies, Cookies for a Crowd, Confections

Old-Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies
Definitely a collectable Betty Crocker Cookbook.
