Alex,
No worries, baking's all about making yummy memories and it's certainly a common language! Yeah...we're both living in previous British colonies, so you wouldn't think there should be many differences, eh?

Aaaaahhh.... I get it now! I'm very new to this baking lark so shouldn't presume to talk on behalf of all of Australia, as I'm pretty sure we do use the same measurements here as it Canada. And, now that you mention it, I think I remember that whole capital "T" and lower case "t" from my baking with my grandmother when I was a little kid. It was just that my measuring spoons mislead me - they say "t" for tablespoon and "tsp" for teaspoon and it put me right off track! Thanks for explaining it all to me, I really appreciate it!

Alex,
yowsa! I didn't realize the small "t" stood for tablespoon in Australia. I thought you guys use the same British Imperial stuff like we do in Canada! I use the big capital "T" for tablespoon (15 ml) and lower case "t" for teaspoon (5 ml) so I can see why your cookies would be salty. All my recipes abbreviate "T" for Tablespoon and "t" for teaspoon.
Thanks for visiting my site and I hope you do try the cookies again with way less salt! I guarantee they'll taste way better! :)
btw, If you use a "t" for tablespoon in Australia, what the heck do you use for the teaspoon measurement?

Hi there,

I made these biccies today and wanted to double check the measurement for the salt. Does "t" stand for tablespoon, which (here in Australia) would be 15ml? I added 1/2 tablespoon and was surprised that I can really taste the salt. It's quite yummy in a sweet/savoury-peanut butter cup kind of way, but not what I expected. Are our measurements the same as yours or am I losing something in the translation?

Thanks for your site, by the way - it's gorgeous and I can't wait to try out more of your recipes!

Cheers,
Alex
