I was wanting to make some cookies and needed some powdered sugar to coat the cookie dough. Alas I was out so I googled "home made powdered sugar" and tried it and it works. I had my powdered sugar and was able to continue with my cookie recipe. The cookies came out great.

  • 3Keep the lid on the blender until the powder settles (or you might have powdered-sugar coated cabinets, depending on how much of a powdered-sugar cloud gets kicked up by your blender
  • 4During the blending process you may have to stop and stir the bottom as some of the sugar may not get blended completely.
