Forget to buy powdered (confectioners’ or 10x) sugar, or your store is all out? Make your own!
That’s what I just did. Now I’ll likely never buy it again. Plus, did you know that most commercial powdered sugar contains cornstarch? Make your own and you can keep it pure*.
One cup of regular granulated sugar makes about one and a half cups of powdered sugar.
1. Place sugar in a high powered blender or food processor with a sharp blade and process in 30 second intervals. Of course all machines are different so yours may take more or less time. Dull blades take longer
2. Keep processing until you reach powdered sugar
3. Let the powder settle for a few minutes before opening the lid
Extra tip: place a damp towel over your food processor or blender to avoid sugar leaks
*Despite what I said about cornstarch, above, if you live in a very humid area, you may need 1 teaspoon of cornstarch to help keep moisture out of the sugar.
