  • I would use the powdered sugar, or if you have a food processor, you can make your own.  It's one cup of regular sugar and 2 tablespoons of cornstarch to make a cup of powdered sugar.  You just process it until it's a fine powder.

  • The powdered sugar is absorbed into the warm cookies and coats them nicely. While regular sugar just stays in grains. Not the same.

  • DO NOT SUBSTITUTE POWDERED SUGAR OR REGULAR!!!!

    Trust me, the texture and taste will be so different. Your buckeyes will have a gritty feel to them, and in buckeyes the powdered sugar kind of acts like flour does in cakes- it dries everything out a bit to make it hold together. Regular sugar won't do the same thing. You can pick up a 2lb bag of powdered sugar for less than $2- It's well worth it!!!

  • It's powdered sugar. It used to be called Confectioner's Sugar because it was used by confectioners-bakers of fancy cookies and cakes.
