Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk

How frustrating to be in the middle of making a dish to find the one ingredient you need is not in the cupboard.  condensed milkI came across a great recipe for making sweetened condensed milk – an item in a lot of different desserts. 

Here’s what you need:

1 cup powdered milk

1/3 cup boiling water

2/3 cup granulated sugar

3 Tablespoons of butter

Mix all ingredients in a blender until all of the sugar is dissolved.  You can add a few drops of water until it is the consistency you desire if you feel it is a little too thick.  Use as is, or store in the refrigerator.
