Pillsbury Harvest Time Cook Book

  The Pillsbury Harvest Time Cook Book printed in 1980 has been one of my favorite of the Pillsbury booklets. As you can see, my copy is quite worn. It has a nice selection of recipes. Ranging from Family meals to Fall Baking, Harvest Foods, recipes using fall fruits and vegetables to Lunchbox and after school snacks.
  There is something for everyone in here. I have seen this book at several book sales so keep a eye out for it.
  Sue and I have made several different recipes from it and maybe we will inspire you to try some of them, listed below.

Chicken Vegetable Stew

Refrigerator Cucumber Pickles

Carrot Bread

Oriental Green Beans

Quick Crescent Cinnamon Crispies 


  1. I think I have this booklet. If I don't, it sure looks like a must-have by the pictures.
    I will be checking back to see what recipes you pick!!

  2. Remember, we are constrained on choosing recipes by not using something too close to what we've already posted. There will probably old favorites you would choose as well as those we are making. It's a good book with lots of "from scratch" recipes.

  3. Hello I cannot believe you have this cookbook. I think I had it and my dogs ate it when they were puppies. I am trying to locate a carrot casserole recipe in there to make because I really have a craving. Can you help me get the recipe please? It had carrots, cream of celery soup, cheddar cheese and bread crumb topping.

  4. Hello Anonymous,
    I finally found the cookbook in question, but sadly no recipe for a carrot casserole. If you think it is from this era, I will check my other books from around that time. Might take me a few days. Hope I can help.

  5. nice post dear blogger

  6. Is this the book that includes the tuna casserole and the Ham with cheddar bake? I remember a pumpkin cream cheese or dream wip pie, too?

    1. I have passed on my copy of this book to one of the younger generation after scanning in the recipes I wanted so I can't answer that question for you. Sorry about that.
