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.

Also, as a side note: these are not breakfast worthy. Ever.

Thank you i have the colonoscopy on Tuesday and am dreading the prep more than anything lol. I think what ever the outcome I will try a gluten free diet to see if it helps with the symptoms. I've read so many stories of people going gluten free and symptoms such as depression, anxiety...

A positive on any one celiac test should lead to an endoscopy/biopsies being done by a gastroenterologist. You should keep eating gluten until the endoscopy is done.

Hi LexieA, It's perfectly ok to grieve or feel down because of a diagnosis of celiac disease. Feelings are not obligated to perform on command. But, over time you can adjust to the new diet reality and even like it. Getting used to eating mostly whole foods and more natural foods is a goo...

Hertzya, Congrats to you for sticking with your service in spite of celiac disease. That seems like it would be hard to do, And thanks for your service to our country!

Thank you all
