  1. Question :

    From your Chinese Walnut Cookie recipe, how to do the measurement for the ingredients ? by weight or by using the measureing cup ?
    e.g. 150g shortening is by weight ?
    e.g. 300g plain flour, should I use the weight or measuring cup to get the 300g ?

    Please advise. Thank you.
