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.

i would think pound as well, but not 100%.
im in the uk, so dont understand the whole cups thing anyway. im sure you can get cheap scales (in the uk, its less than £3). much more accurate, you will get better and more consistent results.
if you do want to convert, go on or google, 'how many cups in Xoz of X ingredient', usually gives you an answer straight off. (dont just do how many cups - Xoz', the answer is ingrediant specific!)
