The New York Times Heritage Cook Book - Jean Hewitt 1972


The New York Times has a long tradition of sharing recipes and wonderful culinary sections of the paper featuring chefs and venues of wonderous flavors. This 1972 Edition is curated into regions of America and showcases heirloom recipes sent in by readers that have been passed along and are filled with tradition and pride of kitchen skills.


Here is an example for you:

*Farmer in the Dell*

1 pound six ounce loaf extra fresh white bread

1 seven and one half ounce package farmer cheese

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 egg

1/2 pound butter, melted and clear yellow liquid poured off for cooking (discard milky solids)

1/4 cup confectioners sugar


  1. Remove crusts from the bread slices. With a rolling pin, roll each slice until very thin.
  2. Beat together the cheese, granulated sugar, vanilla and egg and spread 1 tablespoon mixture on each slice of bread.
  3. Roll up each slice and pinch sides to hold together.
  4. Heat the butter in a very heavy skillet and sauté the rolls a few at a time, over medium heat until golden. Roll in confectioners sugar while hot. 
  5. Yield about 26 pieces or 8 servings.
