I really don't know how to rate this recipe knowing that the kitchen approved version using a whisk won't work, believe me, you would be whisking for days on end with still a grainy confectioners sugar. The personal recipes version states to "Mix the two until powder forms" but didn't state what to mix it in. As for the kitchen approved recipe I would give it one star for the simple reason the whisk won't work. I did a test run in a mini food processor which still resulted in grainy confectioners sugar. Lastly I used my single serve blender and the result was a 5 star perfect powdery confectioners sugar or powdered sugar as it's also known. *Update* The kitchen approved version has been updated to reflect the proper way to make the sugar and I highly suggest using a blender.

This worked great but it needs to state that you need a high power blender I used the nutr-bullet blender and it turned out great it has to grind to a fine powder which mine did thanks for sharing Read More

I ran out of confectioners sugar to make glazed brownies and just had about 1/2 cup left. I made this and it turned out great. This is so good to know just for this reason. I did blend it in a small Tribest blender and it came out fine! Read More

I never knew that making confectioners sugar was so simple! I cringe when I think of all of the money I have spent or times when I didn't make something because I didn't have any on hand. Very simple. Yields more. I doubled this recipe and had over 3 cups of confectioners sugar at the end. Read More
