"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."
"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!"
"This works great and is much cheaper than buying it in the store!"
"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."
"I am making donuts and I need 2 cups of powdered sugar for glazed donuts and don't have it. Now I do. Thanks so much I live 20 miles away from town, can't just go to the store. Thank You, Thank You Thank You!"
"I live way out of town so it's great to know th way to get round not having the ingredients you need Thanks so much"
"I don't buy powdered sugar anymore. I use this recipe! Thank you!"
"Perfect and powdered in a coffee mill with or even without a starch. I used tapioca starch to be corn free. I would use this recipe again for sure."
"Thank you, powdered sugar is very price here. I works and a lot cheaper!"
"Works wonderfully! I used my not-for-coffee coffee grinder (I don't have a large food processor or blender)"
"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!"
"I keep forgetting to review this. I use it for so many recipes...and l often tell other people about it. Great money saving recipe and easy to prepare ahead. Thanks for saving me alot of money!"
"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."
"How easy and sooo much cheaper than store bought! Thank you for helping me keep the food bill down."
"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!"
"Oh yes !! You have just saved my recipe..I thought I had Powdered Sugar. Just used it for Recipe #53056. Thank You Thank You!! Have a wonderful day!! Hugs"
"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!!"
"Turned out great for a recipe I ran short of powdered sugar in! I used flour instead of cornstarch due to the cornstarch likelihood of GMOs...made no difference! Thanks southern chef!"
"I'm not sure what I did wrong but I tried this in the food processor and the blender and it came out slightly powdery but way to grainy."
