As to the 1950 red-and-white Pennsylvania Dutch patterned cookbook, this is a very good cookbook that I own several copies so I can share them with family members. You will find a "master" or "key" recipe followed up with variations meaning you get a lot of recipes in a compact cookbook. The 1950 cookbook has a red-and-white cover not the white, pink and blue cover as shown. One of the highlights of this cookbook is the baking section which gives recipes for 8 or 9 inch cakes. The ingredients lists are side-by-side. As I have a small family, I use this cookbook a lot to make 8-inch cakes. The book is beautifully illustrated with vintage graphics and contains many homey touches such as personal comments about the recipes.
The 1956 cookbook, the one with the lattice topped cherry pie and turkey on the cover, is a better cookbook than the 1951 version as it contains updated recipes.
The 1961 version, shown in this ad, is between the two. This cookbook contains a combination of new and old recipes and makes a fine cookbook if you like 1960s recipes.
Please do not be confused by the cover shown. The 1961 cookbook, shown, is very collectible, according to some cookbook collectors.
