Good Seasons Old Fashioned French Dressing Mix

Happy Holidays!

I have been searching high and low for a  clone to Good Seasons French dressing. It was a vinaigrette. 
Not creamy. Its no longer sold. We used to blanch banana peppers and then marinate the peppers in this 
French dressing. A pretty healthy snack.

Any help you can give or point in the right direction would be most appreciated!



Hello Anna,

My previous suggestion for a “tastes-like” is here: 7-7-2008

I found the below copycat recipe today: Best Bottled Dressings


Good Seasons Old Fashioned French Dressing

Dry ingredients:

1 tsp salt,
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp horseradish (She dehydrated some horseradish and ground it, I got it from Penzey's)
1/4 tsp celery seed (also from Penzey's [actually I bought all new dried goods from them for this])
1/8 tsp parsley. 

Add 1/4 cup water, 1/4 cup vinegar, 1/2 cup oil, shake well. 

The horseradish and the celery seed are the keys to this wonderfulness. 

Woolworth's Tea Biscuits

It's so refreshing to see someone trying to compile Woolworth's recipes. Your list is very impressive and 
I'm not sure you can help me. 
I have been on a quest to find the recipe for Woolworth's tea biscuits for years. When I lived in Toronto 
from 1971 to 1976 I purchased them whenever I could. The company I worked for was on Bay Street and if 
I'm not mistaken Woolworth's was on Yonge Street.
This company that I worked for had an employees' lunchroom. I was introduced to these biscuits by a friend 
from England. I was born and raised in North Carolina so I had never even heard of tea biscuits. 
I immediately fell in love. 
The biscuits had a little sweetness to the dough and were about two inches high. There were raisins 
intermingled in the biscuit. The biscuit itself was not at all crumbly. It was dense enough that soft 
butter could be spread easily. 
If you find this recipe I will be unbelievably happy as I have been in search of these biscuits and/or the 
recipe for many many years.
Thank you so much!


Hi Linda,

I have a partial copy of the F.W. Woolworth’s recipe manual, but this recipe is not in it. I also searched the Internet, but had no success.

I’ll post this for reader input.

I just happened to be browsing your site for the first time today.   I was
interested in the search for "Woolworth's Tea Biscuits."   It's possible
that their recipe for home-baked scones A Scone Recipe from Woolworth's 
would be close to what your reader remembers.   

I'm enjoying browsing this amazing collection!   

A new reader,

Are there any copy cat recipes for anything by Nothing Bundt Cakes? I love the lemon cakes but all of the others are great too.

Hello Zaneta,

I found three right off, including the lemon:

Chocolate Chocolate Chip

Sorry, I won’t exhaustively search for any and all Nothing Bundt Cake copycat recipes. If you want any other than those three, you’ll have to request them individually be name.
