    Good Episode…. Interesting trival fact…. With an average of 36 cookies from the normal recipe calling for 1/4 cup of molasses per batch, the 2.3 million gallons of molasses would have been enough to provide every person on earth in 1919 with 2 ginger snap cookies (total of 5.3 billion cookies). Assuming you had the 110 million pounds of flour, 70 million pounds of sugar and 147 million eggs to complete the recipe.
