Grams to Cups & Ounces to Cups. I googled and did the math, but still feel a bit insecure. The pie crust recipe I'd like to use is in grams and ounces and alas I do not have a scale. Does 315 grams flour = 2.5 cups read right? 5.5 ounces butter = 11 Tablespoons & 3 ounces shortening equals 0.8 cups? I figure I'd start with less than I think I need and add until the desired dough consistency... but help would be nice. Thanks!
