Betty Crocker is a cultural icon and brand that was created by the Washburn Crosby Company in the early 20's which later merged with other companies to form General Mills. But did you know that the woman behind the company wasn't even named Betty Crocker? Her real name was Marjorie Husted and she was a businesswoman and the creator of the image which later on became an icon.
Even though "Betty" wasn't a real person, we are still in love with her yummy recipes that have been handed down to us from our parents (and even our grandparents!) Here is a peek at Betty Crocker cookbooks throughout the ages...
The soft color palette on the cover of this 1930's cookbook is so beautiful! We would love to have this sitting on our shelves in our kitchens making them look extra pretty.
This polka dot 1940's cookbook is so darling!
When we think of classic Betty Crocker style the cover of this 1950's cookbook is the first thing that pops into our heads'! This is a must-have for any retro kitchen.
We absolutely love the color-blocking in this 1960's one!
The "Cooky Book"!
... is it bad that we want to eat every single cookie?
Here are a few Betty Crocker cookbooks for kids:
