So I just realized that I used my last few cups of sugar on a new (and really terrible) cookie recipe. All I have is confectionary sugar, and I can't get downtown today to go buy more. Does anyone know if you can substitute confectionary for sugar? and if so, what is the ratio?

Sorry Jasmine, I can not be of help with this one, but I too would like to know what the outcome is. Since it is not for an order, I would try it out just to see if.....

I went to and posed the question. Here's one thing I found:
"powdered sugar (Substitute 1 3/4 cup packed powdered sugar for each cup of granulated sugar called for in recipe. This substitution tends to make cookies less crispy.) "

Same info reaffirmed here:
