Powdered Sugar

Powdered sugar, also known as confectioners' sugar, icing sugar, or XX sugar, is very fine sugar produced by pulverizing granulated sugar, especially a coarser variety used for fruits or cold beverages.

Recipes

    Shape these simple butter cookies like little snowflakes. Add powdered sugar and serve them on a snow day.

  2. Rich Cocoa Bars

    Pureed prunes replace the fat in this chocolate bar cookie. To cut the fat even more, skip the frosting and sprinkle the bars with sifted powdered sugar .

  3. Orange Cake

    Whipped cream and orange sections fill these light-as-a-feather cake layers. Forget frosting-- powdered sugar and mint leaves keep the dessert citrusy fresh.
