A measurement question

wyf4lyf | Apr 22, 2006 07:06 PM

I was making Mexican Wedding Cookies today and I'm curious as to why the recipe said "8 tablespoons powdered sugar" instead of "1/2 cup." I see this all the time...3 teaspoons of something instead of 1 tablespoon, etc. Wondering if there's a reason. I wasn't going to waste my time measuring out 8T when I could easily scoop and sweep a 1/2C measure. Hope the cookies turn out OK! :)
