Shortcrust
The Metric System


All recipes on this site are in metric measurements. If the ingredient list reads "1/2 tsp. of ground cloves" it means an actual teaspoon half-filled, not the US teaspoon measurement. The same applies to Tbsp. Please use the conversion table below for g (gram), ml (milliliter) or kg (kilogram).
Enjoy baking!
