The newer cookbooks don’t have the same recipes that the older books had. How can I find the old recipes?

How do I find the recipes from the older, out of print Betty Crocker Cook books? I’m looking for a recipe from the appetizer section of a I think pink, white, torqoise colored ring bound book, probably from the 60’s. It was a cheddar, sesame seed twist cracker type appetizer that I have been looking for, for years and have not had any luck, would really appreciate some help. thanks Sandra

looking for Easy Macaroni & Cheese Recipe in Betty Crocker’s Step-by-Step recipe File Box. Recipes printed on cards/100 box. Box with recipes is not available. I lost the recipe card for Mac & Cheese recipe with pepper sauce made using a chicken gravy mix, sour cream and green bell pepper. The Mac & cheese recipe used a can of cheddar cheese soup. Can you please find me the recipe? The print file box recipes were created in 1975 by General Mills. I hope you can help me. 🙂
