I haven't made cutout sugar cookies in about 6 months. I was going to make 'em this weekend. Looking at the recipe I had written out (which turned out good, back then), it looks odd to me. I'm wondering if you guys think I may have made a typo or something :/ Just doesn't seem like enough butter. I've tried to convert into cups as well.... still confuses me.
· 225g Butter (1 cup)
· 400g granulated sugar (2 cups)
· 3 eggs
· 700g flour (5 and a half cups)
· 1 tsp salt
· 3 tsp vanilla
What do you think? Thanks
AI think there is a typo, I made a batch of cookies tonight pretty much identical to that and I used 2 cups of butter, and even still it was pretty dry.
Your grams to cups measurements look off. 454 or 452g ( I forget exact#) to a pound so butter is close to half pound and sugar is almost a pound so that would need measuring. Have you tried just the metric weight and after measuring put it into cups to measure.
700 g flour sounds like way too much flour for butter/sugar ratio. 3 eggs even with creamed butter and sugar just don't given enough moisture to that much flour. Does this help? I would go online to look for similar recipes and compare ingredients then alter your recipe or choose a new one.
Oh I was only converting to cups for the sake of asking you guys for help haha, I never use cups when I'm baking. So yeah there might be a mistake.
And that's why it's kind of difficult to compare to a lot of recipes online.... because most use cups.
But I agree I think there's a typo.... I'll probably just find a new recipe and see how it goes.
