If you are out of powdered sugar, put regular sugar in the blender and process on high until it turns powdery. Be sure to stir up the sugar on the bottom a couple of times so it all turns out to be the same consistency. Measure out the amount needed for your recipe!

You add corn starch to keep the sugar from clumping and caking. Commercial manufacturers of powedered sugar do this, which I learned of when in college Food Prep. courses.

Yes, it is better with cornstarch added. Here is the formula: Mix 1 cup granulated sugar + 1 tablespoon corn starch in blender until powdery, stirring often.

Thank you sooooooo much! I had no cornstarch like the other recipes said, so I put it in the blender and it worked. I tweaked it a little bit; I added a pinch of flour; when we use to make thickening for gravies, or sauces we would add a little flour in water; so I added flour and it worked. We're making cinnamon rolls.


thanks again
