1st American Cookie Lady
1st American Cookie Lady Price: $18.99 
In 1917, Anna "Cookie" Covington set out to record all of her favorite cookie recipes as a gift to her daughter because no published cookie recipe books existed at the time. Strangely, her 76 page handwritten personal cooking diary was never delivered to her daughter as planned. 88 years later, the unused diary fell into the hands of food historian Barbara Swell, who recognized it as perhaps the earliest collection of American cookie recipes, dating from the mid-1880s through World War I. The book includes 221 recipes recorded from 1917-1920 along with adaptations for modern kitchens, vintage graphics and photos, World War I food shortage recipes, plus curiosities of cookie baking history. Author: Barbara Swell; Native Ground Books; softcover 6" x 9"; 152 pages.
