A dessert recipe found in “150 New Ways to Serve Ice Cream” published by Sealtest System Laboratories Inc in 1936Butter Pecan Gaufrettes / Krokan Gaufrettes

Waffles are usually dismissed at the breakfast table as “mere waffles” in the US. To the French, who have a way of glorifying things, they are also widely used as part of the dessert, and are called “gaufrettes,” which is rather glorified in sound, and glorious to taste.

Pabst-ett was a cheese prodused by Pabst brewery during Prohibition. Many breweries turned to alternative pruducts back then.  After Prohibition ended in 1933, Pabst sold the cheese business off to Kraft who continued to produce Pabst-ett cheese until at least the late 1940’s. If you want to try your hand at this recipe, use any cheese to your taste you think might go well with the rest of the recipe ingredients.

If this dish was old-fashioned back in 1932 it sure is today. An unfamiliar way to serve cod for a Scandinavian, but it does sound delicious. Apart from the beets and onion it sound a little like what we call “Plukkfisk” in Norway – Ted

Orange Flower Macaroons / Appelsinblomst makroner

An interwar years cake recipe found on cookit.e2bn.org
Orange Flower Macaroons / Appelsinblomst makroner

In the interwar years, the Afternoon Tea had dwindled down to ‘at homes’ with guests, but it remained popular.  More or less intricate cakes and sandwiches were served with freshly brewed tea.

This recipe is particularly is easy to make. Some period recipes are quite tricky and don’t always work. This one is very forgiving and therefore it’s a good one for an inexperienced cook.

Macaroon is the English translation from the French word “Macarone”. Most have almonds as their principal ingredient, but you can also have coconut macaroons too. All are delicious!
