Making Powdered Sugar from Granulated

I just saw a great recipe here called whipped shortbread. I went to make it and realized I didn't have any powdered sugar. Which brings me to my tip. You can make powdered sugar from granulated sugar by putting in a food processer, a blender. I made the cookies and they are so good, quick and easy. You don't need a lot of stuff. Even the dough is good without worrying about raw eggs.

Here's a recipe for Whipped Shortbread

Whipped Shortbread


  • 1 lb. soft butter or margarine(4 cubes)
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp. vanilla or almond extract


With a mixer cream butter. Add powdered sugar and cornstarch a little at a time while beating. Add flour gradually and beat until it until it resembles whipped cream. Drop by teaspoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 325 degrees F for 12-20 min, or until light brown on the bottom. (Golden, but not brown on top). Delicious, melts in your mouth. You can top these cookies with a bit of candied cherry, or a nut.
