question about butter measurement

by Dianne
(Saskatchewan, Canada)

As I am going through this wonderful web site, I am reading the recipe's and I notice that the amount of butter used is referred to "in sticks". How much is that Equivalent to in cups?

From the editor:

Hi Dianne,

A stick of butter is four ounces or 115 grams. Measuring by weight rather than volume will give you better results.

Thanks for your question.
