So the other day I was talking to my grandmother and she was arms deep in making her famous over the top cookies. These bad boys are like a POUND of butter, flour, eggs, and all things amazing. Sadly if I eat one I gain a pound as well, so we keep them out of the house as much as possible. A few days later I called her to see how the cookies went and oops- grandma over measured. Actually, she didn’t measure at all because she did it by heart and that can be a bad thing for any cook. Even if I know a recipe by heart, I make sure I look and look again.
Now with all the baking coming up for Christmas, I have been checking my math and checking it twice and wanted to give you a reminder on how to figure out conversions from cups to quarts to pints to gallons!
