Fund Raiser Cook Books

By Rose Ross Zediker — November 25, 2015

This is my ‘go to’ cook book. I’ve had it for 34 years and made many delicious recipes. In my opinion, these are the best kinds of cook books because they are someone else’s tried and true family favorites.

I have many of these kinds of cook books. One has our favorite quiche recipe. One has our favorite rhubarb pie recipe. But I must admit the one that I’m sharing is my favorite cook book. Why? Because I found a cookie recipe that when I make it becomes everyone favorite. As you can see…I even renamed it!

Cookbook 1

I make these cookies almost every Christmas. You can change up the frosting. Caramel pecan is yummy! You can sprinkle the frosting with decorator sugar or crushed candy canes.

Do you have a fund raiser type cook book?

    Wait -- what's oleo????? Inquiring baking minds want to know. :-) Unfortunately I don't have a single fund raiser kind of cookbook. I'd love to have one though. Nothing like tried and true recipes. And, if the cookbook is from an organization or church that you've been part of then you have all those special memories to go with it.

      Exactly, Kav! I know many of the women who recipes are in the book. Oleo? It's margarine or butter! HA!

    Sounds like a wonderful cookbook, Rose. Turtle cookies sound yummy. May have to try those.

    Rose, what kind of flour do you use? And Kav, don't worry about that. We have such great flour in Canada it is good for everything, but in the U.S? Not so much.

      Marianne, I use all purpose flour (white). Cake flour would probably work too as it's basically a brownie recipe.

    One of favorite cookbooks is my church's cookbook from several years ago. Lots of great potluck memories wrapped up in that one! And I'm with Kav-- the first time I saw "Oleo" in a cookbook, I had to call my mom and ask what it was!

      Stephanie, I have a good friend who was telling me her children(approx. your age) was asking her what oleo was! I have another fund raiser cook book that has the best banana bread recipe. It uses graham cracker crumbs.

    Yes, my go-to book is from my home church. Many of the contributors have passed on, and I like keeping their spirits with me through the food they shared. :)
