Recipes from women associated with the DeMolay fraternal organization, founded in Kansas City in 1919. This small-scale, lovingly => self-produced mimeographed booklet — presumably a fundraising effort — opens with Spiced Peach Salad Molds (leading a pack of other gelatin-based salads and molds), and includes Fisherman's Pie (made of tuna fish, hard-boiled eggs, a can of peas, and a can of mushroom soup topped with mashed potatoes), along with a recipe for oven-fried chicken to serve 50 and a range of desserts including Maple Pecan Chiffon Pie, a variation on the classic Ritz [Cracker] Pie, and Busy-Day Cake with Lazy Daisy Frosting. The cover, although now faded, appears to have borne => a hand-drawn design, and there is no publication information provided; however, many of the recipes were contributed by Hilda Stone, Priscilla Carroll, Virginia Sanborn, Arlene Curtis, Doris Crouse, and Alma VanHorn.
Not in Brown, Culinary Americana. Front wrapper says "Mother's Club," but all online references to the organization give either "Mothers' Club" or "Mothers Club. In original hand-inked wrappers, on original plastic rings; wrapper design faded, edges worn with short tears. Pages clean, unmarked, and unstained. => A surely uncommon if not now unique item, with no holdings discoverable. (Inventory #: 38138)
