Colored confectioner's sugar, also known as colored powdered sugar, is an easy way to dress up cookies and other baked goods.
Making a batch of colored powered sugar will make you feel like a pastry chef, even if you're a baking newbie.
All you need to make colored confectioner's sugar is confectioner's sugar, of course, and freeze-dried fruit and a tool to use to blend them together.
I used a food processor and that's probably the simplest tool to use.
However, in a pinch if you could probably blend the sugar and freeze-dried fruit in a blender. Just make sure the blender is completely dry.
You could also use a really clean, preferably unused coffee grinder to make really small amounts of colored confectioner's sugar.
Confectioners sugar or powdered sugar will last indefinitely if stored in an airtight container. However, use your senses-smell, sight, taste--to make sure it's still fresh. Powered sugar can go stale after a time.
- ½ cup confectioners’ sugar or icing sugar if you're in the UK

Measure confectioner's sugar and freeze dried fruit.
Add sugar and freeze dried fruit to bowl of food processor.
Pulse for a minute until freeze-dried fruit is pulverized and combned with the powdered sugar.
