Black and white 9 1/2" x 14 1/2" ad for this invaluable cooking product. The ad has a drawing of a family Thanksgiving dinner being served at a large round table. The suits on the boys and the bows in the hair of the girls and the maid passing plates of food to everyone. The ad headline reminds you that "Crisco will make your Thanksgiving dinner better and more digestible".

Full color 7 1/2" x 11 1/2" ad for "the ready creamed shortening" that "saves 1/3 mixing time". The ad has a sequence of pictures that show one lady watching another while she is making cookies. In these pictrures we are being told that it is easier to use Crisco because it is ready-creamed and that food made with Crisco is easier on your body because it is digestible. The ad contains recipes for Chocolate Drops, for Cream Snaps and for Delecta White Cake.

Black and white 6" x 11" ad for their Fat. The headline claims that "You can't fool your stomach so cook with Crisco...the wholesome fat that digests quickly" and there are three pictures that tell a story. First we see a young mother yelling at her boy and his friend for making so much noise. The friend asks why the mother is so cross and her son said that she's got one of her stomach spells". Nest we see the mother looking over her husband's shoulder at a newspaper ad that talks about how quickly Crisco will digest and he, with a look of fear in his eye, asks her to try it. In the last picture she is busy cooking more fat-filled goodies and offering them to her son and his friend who is being told that "she's this way all the time now". The text talks about this "light, creamy wholesome fat that digests quickly" and gives a recipe for Chocolate Pinwheels.

Full color 9 1/2" x 13" ad Crisco for cakes, pastry and frying. The ad has an example of Crisco's Brown-Sugar Loaf Cake sitting there along with the recipe for how to make it. It looks good but the recipe is kind of long to recreate here. The ad, half-way down, says that "It's llighter! It's richer! It's made with Crisco", something that you'll be saying. The text says that it's "Sure to be a family favorite, this meltingly moist and rich brown-sugar cake is party-perfect, too. And it's yours so easily - with Crisco. For blended into every spoonful of pure, all-vegetable Crisco is a cake-baking secret no other type of shortening has. And Crisco's Quick-Method cake recipe is built around that secret. Result? A lighter, richer, moister, more tender cake than with any other type of shortening or ordinary recipe! It's quick to mix - takes only 4 minutes! Easy, too. No eggs to beat, no creaming - and only one bowl needed. Yet with it every cake's a masterpiece - one you're proud to say is all your very own! Of course, Crisco makes any cake a better cake. Why, more women bake with Crisco than any other brand of shortening! But when you use Crisco and Crisco's Quick Method recipe you're sure of the best cake you ever baked".

Crisco 5

Full color 9 1/2" x 13" ad that tries to convince you how important it is to use Crisco to get the best out of any product that you use. The headline claims that "Crisco makes this Betty Crocker Golden Date Cake lighter, richer!" and has a picture of this cake, minus a few slices, to make its point. There is a recipe for this product filled with careful instructions and the caption says that "It's delicious! Different! And oh, so easy to make with new easier-blending, creamier Crisco!". The rest of the text discusses what makes Crisco the best shortening to use and urges you to use it to see for yourself.
