Elizabeth Cottrell recently came across the book of recipes linked above. It was created as a fundraiser by the women of Emmanuel back in the 1980’s. Elizabeth and Trudy Pence have estimated it to be from the mid-to-late 80s.
It’s filled with delicious cookies, breads and more that were favorites of the women who shared them. Hopefully, reading through it brings back fond memories of Christmases past, those who are no longer with us and time spent enjoying good food with family and friends. It may even remind you of a recipe you’ve long forgot, but would like to make again. Or, perhaps you’ll find a new one to whip up.
