I was always taught that 1 stick of butter = 1 cup of butter....

Someone recently argued with me on this after doing some math conversion in there head.  Saying that 2 sticks of butter = 1 cup.  THEN I was reading on a website (The Joy of Baking), and it said the same.

1 cup = 1 stick
1 cup = 2 sticks HuhHuhHuhHuh??

I'm so confused!

As a matter of fact, a stick of butter is only a half cup.  Lots of sticks of butter have lines on the packaging to show you how much butter you're cutting off the stick, too.

You might be thinking of sticks of Crisco.  Those are one cup sticks.

Haha.  I knew about the lines for tablespoons, I just reallly had it in my head that 1stick=1cup.  Though on the upside, I now know that I can generally cut down on butter without a problem... considering I've often not put enough in. Cheesy
