    I have a recipe that calls for 1c. melted butter.

    Does that mean that the butter, melted needs to equal 1 cup, or that the butter without being melted equals 1 cup BEFORE melting?

    two sticks is one cup, which is what I would melt.

    That's not a dumb question! In fact, it's very logical.

    I'm sure they mean 2 sticks, too.

    YAY!

    That's MUCH better than me scooping out a cup of butter from the butter tub! [​IMG]

    Quote:It will be the same either way. You can melt two sticks of butter and that will be one cup.
