This was a perfect find. I was making a recipe that didn't have powdered sugar in the ingredient list. In my hurry to make the recipe, I made the mistake of not reading thru the directions first. Guess what? I needed powdered sugar. So thank you for saving my recipe. It was perfect.

Didn't have corn starch so I used what I normally use in lieu of corn starch: potato starch. It came out powdery, but not as powdery as I'd want. Will try to run it through the food processor again tomorrow - maybe I hadn't left it running long enough (2 minutes). I used it on the Recipezaar recipe for funnel cake, with great results. Thanks!

Thank you! I rarely have confectioner's sugar on hand, but I always have cornstarch and regular sugar. This was so simple I won't worry about buying it any more. My blender had a bit of a hard time with it, so I'll try it in my food processor next time.

Thank you for this recipe. I actually can't have corn starch (newly developed food allergies) and was going to give up "powdered sugar" but your recipe gave me the information I needed to make substitutes. Now I can make my own using Arrowroot instead of corn starch. My recipes taste just as good as before! Thanks!

This really works remarkably well! You saved my dessert I was in the middle of making when I found I was out of powdered sugar!!

This worked in a pinch. I left the FP running for quite a while but it still remained pretty grainy. I used a Cuisinart FP, maybe other brands are able to grinds the sugar a little finer. I'm glad I found the recipe so I could ice my cake. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
