A half a pint equals 1 cup which is 8 oz.

A pint is a pound the world around...that's the only way I can remember! So....eight ounces!?!? LOL

Susie,

I always thought a pint is 2 cups, and 1 cup is 8 oz. Am I wrong? ...or was that a joke? I'm not sure....please explain. Thanks

You're right! A pint is a pound which is 16 oz or two cups....so a half pint would be eight ounces or one cup.

Actually hate to bring this up at this point, but if you empty an 8 ounce container of sour cream into a measuring cup, you'll find it's not quite full. Sour cream doesn't weigh the same as water (it's denser--heavier). But in most recipes, the slight difference shouldn't hurt too much. The correlation between weight (ounces/pounds) and volume (cups/pints) only works for ingredients that have the same specific weight as water. Just as an example, 8 ounces of flour will be in the neighborhood of 2 cups, not one.
