Donna's notes for this recipe:
I found 2 recipes for this on line. The comments both said increasing the powdered sugar to 2 Tablespoons made it as sweet as Miracle Whip is. I have not made it, but will forward recipe to my sister to test. She and i have the age old debate best Foods or Miracle Whip often. I added a picture from one of the recipes.

Mix the first six ingredients together with a mixer or blender.
Slowly pour in 1 cup oil, a few drops at a time, mixing thoroughly. This an important step.
Add remaining 1/2 cup oil a little faster, carefully blending in each bit.
Mix in 2 tbs of vinegar and set aside.
In a separate bowl, mix cornstarch, mustard and 2 Tablespoons vinegar together till combined.
Add to cornstarch mixture to boiling water and cook till smooth and pudding like. It should only take a few minutes.
Slowly add the hot cornstarch/mustard mixture to the egg mixture and blend well.
Refrigerate in airtight container or clean jar
Makes enough to fill one 11.25 oz jar.
NOTES: the comments all said it was not sweet enough so they added another Tablespoon powdered sugar, so i included changed recipe to two also added the paprika and garlic one recipe had (and is listed on the MW jar). Here is what one person said:
This is a very good base recipe for Miracle Whip. I found when I compared it side by side with Miracle Whip, it was not as sweet. So, I added another tablespoon of powdered sugar and that did the trick. Also, Miracle Whip has paprika and garlic in it. So, I added 1/4 teaspoon of paprika and 1/4 teaspoon of garlic. Tastes just like Miracle Whip to me!!! Good stuff!!

Is it white vinegar or cider or makes no difference? Will make with cider to start and see how it tastes. Can't wait to try it. Thanks!

Thanks for the vinegar info Donna, Welll....I made this a couple days ago. Made a double recipe in my food processor. It came out awesome!!!Used cider vinegar but will try the white next. My husband quit using the one from the store and started using mine, said he liked it better. Verrry creamy and perfect, did use the extra sugar as suggested and eggs from the farm. Will quit buying at the store now and keep my eye on oil on sale from now on. Gonna also try part olive oil version to see how it tastes. Love making it myself! Thanks a bunch..
