I just made a peanut butter cookie recipe yesterday. 16 ounces of Smucker's Natural Creamy Peanut Butter equaled 1 1/2 cups when I took it out of the jar. I discovered this after I mixed all the oil in by hand and then put it into the mixing bowl from the measuring cups!

So true, a big difference when it comes to liquid weight vs. dry weight, that's why God created 2 sets of measuring cups.
A simple hint: when measuring any sticky ingredients into a measuring container, either wipe the container with a bit of vegetable oil or a spray, do the same to the measuring utensil. Item will easily be released and clean up is easier. I'm sure everyone here already knows that.
