I recently got an heirloom recipe book that has old German recipes dating from 1940s (or earlier) from the area my mother and family came from. I would like to make some of the cookies in the book that I remember my grandmother making but the quantities are measured in “glasses”.. For example it says: “4 Glas Mehl” (flour), “1 Glas Zucker” (sugar)...etc.”
I would like to know how much is “1 Glas” ??? Were drinking glasses back then only one standard size and if so what would it equal in our metric or imperial measurements?
If anyone can help me with this I would greatly appreciate it. My mother has serious memory issues and unfortunately can’t help me out because she doesn’t remember. I would love to try these old recipes.
