I want to try the NFSC recipe here on CC but I don't really work in cup measures, I weigh everything. If someone could tell me how much a cup of butter weighs, preferably in metric! i'd really appreciate it.
I just double checked with butter i have in the freezer: my 1 pound (453 g)block is 2 cups
OK, I can't believe I just got up and weighed some butter, just because I was curious!
Anyway, I got 8 ounce = 226.796185 gram
And here's a conversion link for you: http://www.onlineconversion.com/weight_volume_cooking.htm
thanks i wondered that too!
Thanks CookieD-oh and jenng1482. That really helps.
Now I'm going to make a batch of NFSC and see how they compare to my regular butter cookie recipe.
Thanks again for your super-quick responses.
1/2 Cup is 4 oz
1 cup 8 oz
3/4 Cup 1 1/2 stick
1 stick is 1/2 cup =4 oz
so forth and so on yadda yadda yadda (smiles)
hope its helps someone !! brendabaker
i just stick conversions into google, it usually works.
