Hello there...I hope someone can help me, does anyone know what the measurement dsrtsp is? I've bought a new cookbook and its used in a few of the recipes and there is no abbreviation key

I would guess that it means "desert teaspoon"

That's a first for me.

A quick search turned up "dessert spoon". Which is smaller than a tablespoon, between 2-3 teaspoons.
