Unfortunately, we do not know the date of the recipe most of the time - unless the original author notes it on the card.  Most of the time we can get a general idea of the age of the collection, but it is only a guess.  I would estimate that the Eidson collection was put together from the Mid-60s thru the 1980s.  I will say that this recipe looks older than most in the collection.
