(Health) Dainty & Economical Desserts.

24 pp. Dec. gray wrappers. Fourth Edition. Boston: Joseph Burnett Co., c.1918.

An elegant book of dessert recipes from Joseph Burnett Co., which was located in Boston and produced flavoring extracts and color pastes for baking and desserts of all kinds. Recipes, which are noted when they exclude sugar, eggs, wheat flour and butter, include fig ice cream, dried apple cake, honey cakes, Norah's squash pie, Indian pudding, economy chocolate pudding, American kisses, and my favorite, stale cake pudding with raspberry sauce. Most recipes lean natural, which is somewhat surprising, and with an eye toward low sugar, wheat, & dairy. Near fine.
