Here’s a sweet vintage recipe folder/booklet from the New York Cherry Growers Association, I believe it was published around 1955 since it includes the 1955 prize winning recipe for Lattice Cherry Pie. Each of the recipes are typed out below as well as scans of the full sheet. It’s too long for my scanner so I scanned it in sections, click a picture to view a larger copy if you like.
