Vintage dessert recipes from Moncton’s Marven’s Biscuits

My late father worked at Marven’s Biscuits for 29 years from 1949-1978, so Marven’s memorabilia always interests me.

After my father died last August, my cousin Louise Richard and her husband Maurice gave me a very special gift of an antique Marven’s cookie tin. In her Christmas card, Louise included a couple of vintage promotional recipe cards that Marven’s issued in the 1950s or 1960s. I’m sure more than a few households saw these on their dinner tables in that era!

Enjoy these recipes for breton squares, napoleons, cream ‘n’ cinnamon pie, and cherry-mallow pie. Click on each photo for a larger version. (Editor’s note: For a PDF version of the recipes, click here.)
