Thank you for your replies. I did not give a very specific recipe since I myself was not sure about the proportions. I just said I wanted butter biscuits. So my basic doubt is regarding the weight of the ingredients. What will be the quantity of flour and butter required to make one kg or one ounce of biscuits? If I could get an estimate of that then I can figure out the costs. I used to think that butter by weight would be less than the weight of the flour. The maker said its twice the weight of the flour.
