I haven’t been too interested in garage sales, but estate sales? That’s another story! Every once in a while, the family loads up the Expedition and we’re off on one…expedition, that is! I think I’m getting a bunch of vintage things this year (I was there!) and one of the neat things that I found – at least I hope it’s neat – is an aluminum gingerbread mold.
Here is the box it came in.
Isn’t it wonderful? I really want to try it out…
Just think…they didn’t even have baking spray back then – that should make things easier! But about that broom straw…do you think they plucked one from their kitchen broom? I don’t think I’ll be following that direction!
Do you suppose that gingerbread mix TODAY is the same proportion as it would have been 55 years ago? If I add 1/2 cup flour and 2/3 cup water that it will turn out the same? Chances are not good, but it’s worth a try.
So here’s my question: Does anyone have a copy of the December 1955 issue of Woman’s Day Magazine? I need a recipe from it!
