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.
TIA

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 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.
