    The link goes to your yummy Brown Sugar Biscuit twists!

  • says:

    The link is wrong. Goes to a recipe for brown sugar biscuits not making powdered sugar.

  • Jenny says:

    Ooops wrong link, but those are sure looking yummy.

  • says:

    I think this is the link you meant to use:

  • karen says:

    the link goes to a dif recipe, not to DIY powdered “sugar”

  • says:

    Link is fixed! Great idea if you’re a more natural eater and prefer less refined food. Sucanat is pricey though (and we order it through a discount on amazon with as many discounts as we can get) so it’s not necessarily a frugal option =)

    • Crystal says:

      I get mine through a Bulk Foods Store and it’s actually fairly inexpensive. Not as cheap as regular sugar, but definitely less expensive than buying it at the health food store.

      I’ve found that if I pay more for sweeteners, I use them more sparingly — which can be a good thing! 🙂

  • Lacey says:

    “Real” powdered sugar has corn starch in it, too…not just ground sugar. This should be taken into consideration for use in recipes, as the corn starch makes a big difference in a lot of foods!

    • Lori F. says:

      Lacey, I was thinking the same thing. The cornstarch is actually needed in some recipes, though not in others. I make a sugar cookie recipe that uses powdered sugar instead of granulated sugar and the cornstarch is needed to keep the dough tender and workable.

    • JaspurrandDude says:

      The organic powdered sugar I buy has organic tapioca starch instead of cornstarch.

  • says:

    Thanks, Crystal, for sharing my link!!

  • says:

    We are going through Laura’s snack recipes right now and they are so good. I am constantly substituting ground wheat and sucanat in “regular” recipes with very poor results. Finding her site was a huge blessing for us because my husband is now eating the “wheat” foods too. They actually taste good. He has request a couple be made for Christmas treats for his co-workers!

  • Angela says:

    I think this is brilliant as well. And I spend much less on sugar I think by buying the healthier sweeteners and then just eating much less of it.

  • Ophelia says:

    I’m going to try this with coconut sugar.
