Or is it bad proofreading?
Paul Prudhomme's Louisiana Kitchen has a recipe for brown sugar cookies that includes 1 tablespoon of allspice and 2-1/2 tablespoons of cinnamon, for 3 dozen cookies.
Does anyone else have this cookbook? Has anyone made this recipe? I'd think that they meant teaspoons and flubbed the proofreading--note, I'm pretty sure they actually spell out tablespoons, rather than using the t/T abbreviations.
