    :gingerbread: Problem with measurements

    So, I want to try some cookies but I have problem with US cup measurements because I want to convert them in grams. I looked on the net and I found this two sites but they're not really showing the same numbers in gram.

    http://www.jsward.com/cooking/conversion.shtml

    which one is correct?

    A "cup" is a size measurement - not a weight measurement - so there is no standard translation to grams (example: a cup of stones would weigh so much more than a cup of confectioner's sugar) I would use the second set of measurements. It shows a list of ingredients and tells you how much a cup, half cup, quarter cup, etc. of that particular ingredient would weigh in grams.
