would anyone know the best technique for making powdered sugar? the stuff I buy seems to have an awful "undertaste" I'm assuming might be from the cornstarch that's added??!!:rolleyes:
I have a food processor & was wondering if I could put regular sugar in there, but not too sure how long to process...I don't wanna end up with sugar paste!!:eek:
thanks much all!! meg

Just combine 1 cup granulated sugar and 1 tablespoon cornstarch in a blender. Blend until powdery. Makes a scant 1-1/2 cups of powdered sugar.

You can always reduce the amount of cornstarch called for.

I've never tried this in a food processor but I can't imagine why it wouldn't work if you pulse rather than whiz.
