It's a "fat" used to cook and bake with. It was a trend like margarine, etc.

I am waxing nostalgic. I found a recipe hand written by both my grandmother and her daughter (my mother) for Mayonnaise Chocolate Cake. Had to make one, looking forward to taking a bite of a cake my Mom made when I was a kid. Found this PB cookie recipe and think it is most like my grandmother's. She mad them when we came to visit.
