• 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

Are you like me? Have you gone into your pantry or cupboard looking for powdered or confectioner’s sugar to find that you ARE OUT! Darn it, that is terrible especially when you are trying to dust a dessert or pancakes or waffles. How about when your hot cake or scones come out of the oven just begging for a bath in a yummy glaze?

Powdered sugar is not only great for dusting, but can be used in place of granulated sugar in recipes like kourambiedes or Greek wedding cookies. We also call these “snowball cookies” at Christmas.

Hey! Whatever works right? Speaking of Christmas that makes me think of hot chocolate and gifts. I love using powdered sugar in my homemade hot chocolate mixes. Of course we can’t forget about homemade marshmallows!

If you find yourself in a pinch and in need of powdered sugar, here’s how easy it is to make:

Be sure not to blink or you might miss something…smile

In a blender combine powdered sugar and cornstarch. Close your lid tightly. Blend on high until it turns into a powder. When you think you’re done — blend it a bit more!

…and it is as easy as that! That is all powdered sugar is — granulated sugar and cornstarch! Now you know…

I see lots of scones in your future!
