Re: Can anyone help with me with a measurement?

I like mothertrucker's idea - divide in 4 & use 3. No measuring cup to wash that way.

My only addition would be: divide in 4s, use 3 & eat the 4th with a spoon! {#emotions_dlg.wub}

I like the way that you think, ChiliPepper! Eat the rest! Now, that is what I would do, too! {#emotions_dlg.wub}

There is always someone out there that solves problems in a simple (practical) way better than I do. I can get caught up in calculations when something else works just as good or better. I like threads like this whether it is about a receipe or cosmetics or skin care or well any way we can share information. Some threads end up being like arguing............

My feelings exactly! Thanx to all

Re: Can anyone help with me with a measurement?

I can never even find a 12 oz. Cool Whip anymore at our local grocery store. I suppose the "big box" stores have them.

What would be my solution (and I suppose it would depend on the recipe)? I would use an 8 oz. container of Cool Whip. I do not think you would miss the other oz. that much. In fact, I have found there is sometimes too much Cool Whip in the recipe. I make a lot of icebox cakes and 1 less oz. of Cool Whip would not make a difference. Of course, if you already have the 12 oz. container, cutting in fourths was a great suggestion!
