Dry Measuring Cups:
have flat tops and long handles.
are used to measure dry ingredients such as flour and sugar.
do not have a pour spout like a liquid measuring cup.
How to Measure:
Scoop your ingredient into the cup until it heaps over the top.
Level the top using your finger or a butter knife. This way your ingredient measures exactly to the top of the cup.
Note: Some recipes may call for a dry ingredient, like brown sugar, that is measured by packing and pushing, rather than scooping, to eliminate air inside the cup
