granulated...I believe they use the term "confectioner's sugar" in recipes when specifying "powdered".

In professionally written recipes 'sugar' means granulated. If a recipes uses both white/brown sugar then to avoid confusion they will say 'white sugar' or 'brown sugar'. Powered sugar is always listted as that or 'confectioner's sugar'.
