This one is NOT mine. I found it years ago trying to give my mom a little taste down memory lane. She has always talk about the tea cakes and molasses cookies her mom gave the children in the morning before going to school. YOU CAN'T DO THAT THESE DAYS. A lot of the children had'nt had breakfast, parent working or just plain LACK OF FOOD. My mom always say, " when you know how to shop & cook, you can look in your kitchen an find something to put together and feed your family. You need to know how to do both. So this one is for Grandma and Mom. THANK YOU
