This is easy to make--just make sure you use 1 tablespoon of cornstarch per 1 cup of sugar.


  1. Combine the two and process in blender until powder forms.

Great recipe! Saved me from having to go to the store....DO NOT DOUBLE! It didn't work as well with two cups of sugar.

I do this in my coffee grinder-not-used-for-coffee. Works great, makes a cloud of dust when you open though if you aren't careful. In many recipes, you can leave out the cornstarch.

Oh thank you for posting this! I was in the middle of making the filling for homemade Oreos and looked in my pantry and what didn't I see? Yuppers you guessed it powdered sugar. I thought there was some majical way they made it honestly lol been a baker for more than two decades and always bought my own... Well that stops today! Easy fast and I always have on hand both ingredients. Thanks Southern!
