Book Description

Nothing evokes the charms of the country kitchen like the smell of freshly baked cookies--or better yet, the taste.  With the 300-plus recipes in this cookbook, you’ll be able to recreate the best loved cookies and bars ever to come from those kitchens.  Drawn from the pages of Farmer’s Wife Magazine, the recipes include such well-loved classics as peanut butter and oatmeal cookies and toffee squares and special treats like Danish Love Krandse and Scotch shortbread.  All are adapted for the modern kitchen, while preserving the time-tested tastes and traditions of the American heartland.

From the Back Cover

The Farmer’s Wife was a monthly magazine published in Minnesota between the years 1893 and 1939. In an era long before the Internet and high-speed travel connected us all, The Farmer’s Wife magazine gave hard-working rural women a place to find—and share—advice about everything from raising chickens to running a farm kitchen. One of the magazine’s most popular offerings was advice on baking, providing farm family recipes for making everything from basic bread to much-loved holiday desserts. This collection focuses on cookies, one of the more popular (and portable) favorite baked treats on the farm.

 

Recipes for everything from classic stand-bys like peanut butter cookies and oatmeal cookies to special treats like Danish Love Krandse and Scotch Short Bread are all included here, inviting readers everywhere to re-create the fragrant kitchens and delectable tastes of farm days gone by. Adapted for the needs of the modern kitchen, these classic recipes preserve the flavor of a life dedicated to feeding not just the family but the nation. They offer nostalgia and the chance to bake in a tradition unmatched since the 1930s.

Format: Plastic Comb
The Farmer's Wife's staff of experts has tested every one of these cookie recipes, and vintage photos from the magazine provide added appeal to a title packed with cookies from Ginger Creams to Swedish Allspice Cookies. These are quick recipes, easily produced - and sections dividing them by type - Christmas Cookies, Rolled Cookies, Drop Cookies - makes for quick look-up and easy home reference, highly recommended.

As my family continually strives to do more and more the "old fashioned" ways, growing much of our own food and cooking from scratch, I found the entire Farmer's Wife series to be an excellent addition to help me learn to do my cooking/baking from scratch. Love it.

The recipes are nice but no pictures. I like pictures of the finished product. I guess it gives me something to strive for.
But the recipes are very good.

This book was quite disappointing in style, execution
and quality of the recipes. I spent many summers
in the 1950's visiting my grandparents who lived on
a farm in the Midwest and the recipes for these
cookies don't compare to what my relatives baked.
