This beige, brown and black pamphlet was included with the purchase of the Mirro Cooky Press. The cover has the Mirro logo in black and cream superimposed on a drawing of cookies falling out of a cookie jar on the left. "Fancy Cookies, Appetizers and Pasties" is in black script lettering on the lower right. The back cover has the Mirro logo on the left above "finished with DuPont TEFLON No-Stick-No-Scour" and the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval. On the right are photographs of 13 Mirro pots and pans on a light brown background above a list of available products. The front end page has a letter from Laura Wilson, Home Economics Director, Mirro Test Kitchen, and a drawing of her. Tips for caring for the cooky press, measuring and preparing ingredients and utensils precede eight illustrated steps to using the Mirro press. There are 12 cookie recipes, instructions for decorating cookies, recipes for cheese appetizers, tortes, cream puffs, lady fingers and eclairs. There are no page numbers.
