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?
Luckily it's for the "baking bug" and not for an order!
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 www.ask.com 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: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080125150413AARUIwC
Thanks so much IndyDebi!!!
I really appreciate it!
