Coriander curry shortbread recipe on Epicurious website. They are divine, but I would like them less sweet. By how much can I reduce the sugar and still be successful?

1 cup sugar = 200 g

1/2 cup sugar = 100 g

1 cup flour = ??? Depends on how you fill the measuring cup. Could be anywhere from 120 g to 140 g.

If you spoon and level the flour, then
it’s probably closer to 120 g.

if you dip and level then it’s closer to 140 g

120 x 1.75 = 210 g flour spoon and level

140 x 1.75 = 245 g flour dip and level

100 g sugar / 210 g flour = 0.476

100 g sugar / 246 g flour = 0.406

you have roughly 48% using the spoon in level method and 40% sugar using the dip and level method.

you can reduce the sugar as low as 25% for shortbread.

25% of 210 is 52 g - equivalent to 1/4 cup
25% of 246 is 61 g - equivalent to 1/3 cup - 1 TBSP
