Richard requested I make Molasses Momentoes today. I did. This is a recipe from Great Aunt Lula Myers Hart. She had several recipes written into a small notepad. Mom remembers Aunt Lu carried these recipes to our house when she took care of my brother and me. She was always cooking something special.
I changed the recipe somewhat. I used 1/4 c. butter and 1/4 c. shortening (organic, non-hydrogrenated) instead of shortening, 1/4 cup Rapadura (rather than brown sugar). I also added raisins at popular request. Yum.
