    Currently, there's not a place to put package size in the listing of an ingredient, so you could do this:

    Enter in the whole package size in the recipe's ingredients. If it is a 10 ounce package/can, you could enter the ingredient amount as

    Amount Unit Ingredient
    1 10 ounce can Pillsbury chocolate chip cookie dough
    36 each Chocolate kisses

    While the can may be more or less than 10 ounces(I was guessing), it is the cumulative of all the servings in the can and MC will configure the recipe like so. Make sure when you add this to the Ingredient List, you add both the weight of the individual serving and the volume(if indicated). From there, MC will configure the ingredients for nutrition-per-serving.

    Grami, what does the package say for serving size above where it says Calories 130 etc? Does it say 1 oz?

    I think you might be getting the serving size on the package confused with the yield of the recipe. It looks like if you just made the cookies from the package according to directions the cookies would be 1oz per cookie. The recipe is going to make 36 half ounce cookies with a chocolate kiss on top.

    What I would do is enter the serving size as 1 ounce in the ingredient list as both the serving size and the is equal to Weight boxes. Then in the recipe put 18oz of cookie dough. Is that clear? or did I confuse things more?

    I put it into MasterCook using the nutritional info for the Pillsbury Cookies: Ready To Bake, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip I got at They didn't have the regular plain cookie info. I looked at and saw the tubes are 18oz.
