    Treacle, glucose, glycerine, Ammonium Bicarbonate are all puzzling. Where do we get them and what are they?

     

    How much water?

     

    .42 teaspoon of salt... now who is going to measure that?!

    I anxiously went to the recipe since I am a chocoholic but I found that it would be next to impossible to bake these cookies. I am not enough of an expert with math to be able to figure out what .37 of a cup of Castor Sugar or .55 cup of Potato starch would be. Equally as important are the weird ingredients that may be readily in one's pantry in the UK but certainly not the US. Or, if it's something "simple" that I would have, with the "name" the recipe gives it, I wouldn't know. I looked up Dark Treacle and it is not something I have in my pantry so I gave up on the rest.

    Almost 35 years ago, a college friend of mine did a Senior Project, changing a small, common, American recipe book to the metric system. I wondered how that project qualified for a Bachelor of Science degree in Home Economics at a respected university. Now, I appreciate her efforts! These do look delicious.

    The original measurements and the converted measurements should have been presented in table form, so that those of us with scales could decide which to use. Also, weight should be converted to weight, not fluid measurements.

     

    It is generally the case that when a recipe is converted, the eggs are left as whole numbers and the other ingredients adjusted to that scale.

     

    The cookies look great, but the recipe is useless. Perhaps the article could be edited to either fix this or link to the original recipe.

    Agree totally with Katherine, completely useless recipe, the only way to do this recipe is to buy a kitchen scale. Why on earth Americans haven't given up the cup measurement before now beats me. Weights are so much more accurate and easy to use. I for one find it impossible to get a set of cup measures here in Spain, but weight is universal.
