I want to try a new cookie recipe, it calls for 2/3 cup butter or margarine.
I've been baking for awhile, but I've never seen such an odd measurement for butter/margarine. How many sticks does 2/3 cup butter equal (or how many tablespoons does it equal?)

Why not just squish it in a cup and measure out 2/3? (It would be roughly about 10 or 11 Tablespoons I think, but honestly I can't imagine being that exact precise in my baking).

There are 16 tablespoons in one cup. I would say 10 - 11.

Precisely it's 10-2/3 T. which would be 1 stick plus 2-2/3 T. My butter sticks have markings on that make measuring as easy as slicing with a knife.

My chart says 2/3 cup = 11 Tablespoons

1/16 cup = 1 Tablespoon or 3 teaspoons
1/8 cup = 2 Tablespoons or 6 teaspoons
1/4 cup = 4 Tablespoons or 12 teaspoons
1/3 cup = 5 Tablespoons or 16 teaspoons
1/2 cup = 6 Tablespoons or 24 teaspoons
2/3 cup = 11 Tablespoons or 32 teaspoons
3/4 cup = 12 Tablespoons or 36 teaspoons
1 cup = 16 Tablespoons or 48 teaspoons
