We ran out of powdered sugar right in the middle of Valentine cookies this week. I did a quick search on the internet and found that you can MAKE powdered sugar – can you believe it? Here’s the super simple recipe – for every cup of sugar add a tablespoon of corn starch and blend in a food processor or blender until it reaches the proper powdery consistency. The result? No difference in how quickly they disappeared with the “homemade” powdered sugar – yummy cookies and frosting and this mama didn’t have to run to the store.
Do you have a favorite substitution tip to share?
and for some details….
