Overview

Nothing evokes the charms of the country kitchen like the smell of freshly baked cookies—or better yet, the taste.  With the 250-plus recipes in this cookbook, you’ll be able to recreate the best-loved cookies and bars ever to come from those kitchens, and to make an old-fashioned special occasion of every coffee break or after-school treat, every church social, picnic or bedtime snack.  These recipes are drawn from The Farmer’s Wife, a magazine that for decades provided a meeting place for hardworking rural women seeking advice, company, or recipes like these. You’ll find such well-loved classics as peanut butter and oatmeal cookies and toffee squares along with special treats like Danish Love Krandse and Scotch shortbread, pass-the-plate brownies, and holiday treasures.  Illustrated throughout with vintage advertisements and art from The Farmer’s Wife magazine, the recipes are adapted for the modern kitchen while preserving for all time the tastes and traditions of the American heartland.
