I have been trying to locate two recipes for many years. Both were available in
the Trenton, NJ area.
The other is for a mint spritz cookie. It came with a metal cookie press that I
purchased in the early 70’s. It believe it was made by a company in NJ called Elpo
Industries in NJ. It was in a little yellow recipe book. Any help you might provide
me would be greatly appreciated.
I cannot find any mention of a cookie press made by ELPO. Elpo did make some items for baking, but I cannot
find a cookie press made by them, even on E-Bay or other antique/collectibles sites. However, MIRRO has been
making cookie presses for many years, and at least one year, the recipe booklet that they provided was yellow.
See the photo below.
I did find a mint spritz cookie recipe that says it is from the Mirro cookie press recipe booklet:

Thank you so much for the information and your quick response. I really appreciate it.
The recipe book is one that I had for about forty years and somehow, it was lost so I
truly appreciate your efforts. And I have been searching for the other recipe off and
on since 2002 but will not give up. The cake simply delicious.
All the best,
