The box of powdered sugar states that there is 3 3/4 cups of unsifted sugar.

BJ, why not make sure and weigh out a pound on some scales? then measure it by the cupfull.? But actually, according to my measurements iin my cooking text, 1 lb. of powdered sugar is 2-2/3 cups. That is why bakers are taught to measure everything instead of using the cupfull system LOL

Unlike water, 1 cup of powdered sugar does not weigh 8 ounces. From what I've found,a one pound box of powdered sugar yields 3 3/4 cups. Big difference!
