I am looking for a basic cookie recipe for rolling, cutting and decorating. I found the following recipe and was hoping you guys can clear something up for me please, I have posed my questions in red...
1 cup butter, softened - What is a cup of butter, I am used to weighing butter, any idea of weight? Unsalted/Salted?
1 cup superfine sugar, or granulated sugar, processed in blender or food processor for 30 seconds - I guess this is what we in the UK call castor sugar?
½ tsp. Salt
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
2 tsp. Vanilla extract
½ tsp. Almond extract or emulsion, optional
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour. - I guess this is what we in the UK call Plain Flour (as opposed to Self Raising Flour)
Many thanks in advance
