Little Cookbooks: The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection

Royce's Flavoring Extracts For 3 Generations


The cover of the three-fold, eight-panel leaflet features a drawing of three generations of women (presumably grandmother, mother, and daughter), the youngest of which is pouring flavoring extract into a spoon while the other two observe. A mixing bowl and two iced cakes sit on the table in front of them. Title text reads Royce's Flavoring Extracts For 3 Generations, The Best. Beneath the drawing is additional text, "Just a half teaspoonful, Dear." The back panel is a continuation of six inside recipe panels. Text on the back panel notes that the Abner Royce Co. also manufactures numerous other products, including home remedies, perfumes, and household requisites [necessary]. Almost all recipes are for desserts.
