You know that ooey, gooey can of milk that you always have on your shelf for those extra rich baked goods...that is until you need it? Well, I needed mine yesterday, and lo and behold, my son donated it to the canned food drive. So what is a savvy baker to do? Google it of course. And I came up with a great second choice because I always have powdered milk on hand, doesn't everybody?
So here goes, it's easier than pie...
1/2 cup hot water
1 T. butter
1 cup powdered milk
1 cup sugar
Place all ingredients in blender and mix well. I must admit, that I thought I could get away with saving myself from washing the blender and just mixing this by hand. Big mistake. I had lumps and an exhausted arm, so use the blender and then this can be stored in an airtight container in your fridge or freezer. By the by, my lumps baked out perfectly in the toffee chip bars that I made, so it worked out fine, but it still would have been worth washing the darn blender!
