Hello, Nancy, I’m from Argentina, South America. I can see from the show that butter sticks in my country are bigger than in the U.S.A. Can you tell me, please, the weight of a stick of butter so I can make your recipes? Thank you!

A stick of butter is 4 ounces in weight or 8 tablespoons in volume. Four sticks of butter weigh 1 pound. Hope that helps, and happy baking!
