Reader Tip: Baking with Powdered Sugar

Pin it button big

Baking cookies? Here's a tip from reader Marsha on substituting powdered sugar for flour in baking cookies.

OK, if you like cookies, this is my BIG tip. Use powdered sugar to roll out sugar cookies instead of flour. They don't get the "woody" consistency of using flour.

Once again, if the cookies are chocolate (like the chocolate bats I made for Halloween) mix cocoa and powdered for rolling out.

You're only the second person (besides my husband) to know my secret. I'm feeling very generous today!

Thanks Marsha! Does anyone else have good tips for baking over the next month? Look for more cookie coverage soon...
