I found this recipe for Lindstrom's Peanut butter cookies in the recipe area:

1# brown sugar
8oz margarine
1# peanut butter
1/8oz salt
4 oz egg
1 Tbs vanilla
1# cake flour
1/4 oz baking soda

I'm assuming that the # symbol means "pound" but just wanted to make sure. I tried to look up the member that wrote the recipe but I found that
she/he is no longer a member. Since I don't have a scale to measure, does anyone know what the equivalent measures might be if I used cups and spoons?

Also looking for an amazing peanut butter cookie recipe for my daughter
as it's her favorite and she's coming home from California in two weeks.
Thanks for any help that anyone can give me.

# does mean pound.

for the brown sugar thats about 2 cups packed.

for the flour about 4 cups

for the peanutbutter, i'm not really sure but probably around 2 cups, i would buy a small jar and just use the whole thing- just looked at mine here and thats 18oz.
