Front of the Hungarian Nut Roll Cookies recipe card with a notation that the recipe is from Dolores Kremer.

There is also mention of “page 106 of the yellow book.” At this time we do not know what this is in reference to.

In other recipes by Dolores, there are mentions of other colored books — I wonder what they are?!

VRP014 Red White Tin Box

This box was purchased with another box, VRP015 – Wood Box, along with a Ziploc bag full of recipes. The seller of this box sent me the following:

I wish I had more information than this – I purchased these right outside of a small town called Monticello, Iowa. They had an estate auction and sold the house and the contents of the house. I don’t have a name or any other information. Hope this little bit helps, and that you enjoy your recipes. Thank you, Carol
