I found a great website, but didn't realize she is in Australia! Need help.
I have some dried lavender that I have been wanting to try.

The author shares a great tip for making super easy lavender sugar. Blend a tablespoon of fresh lavender flowers with caster sugar in a small glass jar. Cover with an airtight seal and store in a cool place in your pantry. After about a week, the fragrance of lavender would have infused the sugar which can then be used for baking or to sprinkle on top of caramelized fruit and vanilla ice cream.

You can convert to ounces but I would use a food scale. Mine has metric measurements or ounces/pounds.
My experience in baking is that it's tricky to convert weights (either metric or our system) to cups since it's off.
It's actually better if a recipe gives weights in baking as the results are generally going to be more accurate.
Thanks. I have a scale, but have never tried to use it. Maybe this is a good time to use it.
I do this type of stuff all the time... here's what I would use.

Thank you, Joe. This will help me in learning to us my scale. Meantime I can go ahead with the cookies.
