DIVIDER CARD

The Betty Crocker Recipe Card Library

about GIFTS FROM YOUR KITCHEN ...If "food is love," then gifts from your kitchen are the most priceless present you can bestow. Made yourself with tender, loving care, they bear the hallmark of your own good taste and talents. Your specialty might be a garden relish, your famous peach conserve, a Christmas coffee cake for a valued friend, a gourmet treat of home-spiced nuts for a favorite hostess. Something beautiful baked by you consoles a shut-in, welcomes a new neighbor and says "thank you" or "just because I like you" as nothing else can do. Think of the gifts you've received. Do you remember any with more pleasure than food from the kitchen of a gifted cook? So sample the recipes on these cards complete with hints on how to package and present them. All are carefully selected for you-gifts that money cannot buy and only you can give. Cordially,

Pictured: Steamed Holiday Pudding (card 6) and Sparkling jellies (card 5).
