I am searching for a Betty Crocker cookbook from around 1968. It is a red hardback book with a pie shape on the cover. Each piece of the pie pictures a different food. I would like to give it to my newly married daughter. My wife won't part with hers and the book has so many of our family favorites.

Also, if you have ANY Betty Crocker cookbook just sitting in your cupboard, please consider posting it. Most all of them are wishlisted....even the smaller ones. It would be nice to pass them on to someone who might use them if you are not using them. Thank you so much.

I have the First Printing of Betty Crocker's Cookbook for Boys and Girls - 1957.  It is spiral bound and of course, over 50 years old.  It is in remarkably good condition.  The only flaw I can see is that the bottom two  holes on the spiral have come loose - like a page loosening from a three binder where we used to use reinforcers.


It is too old to have a ISBN number.


I would like a credit for it, however, since I suspect it may be quite collectible. 


If you are interested send me a PM.  I do not know how to post it. 


Offer pending

They sell the cookbook that you are talking about on Ebay for $10- $20. My mom got me one when I got married, too. It had all of our family favorites in it! Love it!!
