You know how sometimes you run out of ingredients that you'd swear you had? You start on your baking project only to find you don't have that powdered sugar.
Yep, that was me yesterday.
No way I'm going to the store, because that would involve changing from my yoga pants and my favorite t-shirt. You know, the t-shirt that screams "I have three kids and I love to bake". Yeah....
Anyways, I was rescued from embarrassment and want to simply pay it forward. Call it what you want, today's Kitchen Know-How is about homemade powdered sugar.
Remember the peach galette? I used the rest of my store-bought powdered sugar as a finishing touch on the slices. Totally distracted by the deliciousness of the mentioned pie, I forgot to add the sugar to my grocery list.
Internet to the rescue. Homemade powdered sugar in seconds. Now I can finish my baking project. Yoga pants and all.
Homemade Powdered Sugar
- 1 c granulated sugar
- 2 Tbsp cornstarch
- Place sugar and cornstarch in a food processor and process until powder forms.
- Be careful when opening your food processor, as a cloud of sugar will form.
