Reply to "Cups/Tsp/Tbsp to grams/ml conversion chart"

Unfortunately, there is no single exact, correct answer to that question for dry ingredients, as a cup of all-purpose flour will weigh different amounts depending on how you measure it into the cup (i.e., if just spooned in, you'll get less by weight than if you spoon it and tap it down before leveling, as the tapping compacts the flour). Likewise, granulated sugar weighs less than flour, etc. etc. We actually have a post on this topic as it relates to flour measurement (look about mid-article for the relevant area of the post): https://cookieconnection.julia...olbox-talk-flourpost

If a recipe does not specify how the flour was measured or does not provide weight measures, you'll probably need to test it and establish your own right amount of flour for the recipe. Alternatively, find recipes that already have weight measures (mine all do) and don't mess with the conversions. 

Flour is the biggest issue; more standard conversions exist for things like salt, spices, and liquids.

@Julia M. Usher Thank you. I actually wanted measurements for your sugar cookie and gingerbread recipes. I am following the recipes on the Ultimate cookies e-book. Not sure if I am missing anything but I am only able to see the ingredients in cups and teaspoons and not in grams/ml.

My problem with following the recipe in cups/teaspoons is that I want to use only half of the ingredients to make lesser number of cookies. Half of ingredients is difficult to measure, for example, half of 2 and 1/2 teaspoons is difficult to arrive at, whereas if I have it in grams/ml I can easily halve it.

Could you please guide me as to where can I look for the weight measurements of ingredients on the Ultimate cookies e-book?
