Sunday's Super Tip: Sweetened Condensed Milk

Welcome to Sunday's Super Tip - where I give you a valuable kitchen tip! This week's tip is how to make sweetened condensed milk. It's happened to me before - I'm getting ready to bake, taking out my ingredients, when I realize - I don't have what I need and there's no time to get to the store! Grrrr!

Well, if you find yourself in a bind, here's how to whip up your own sweetened condensed milk!

Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk

1/2 cup boiling water
1 cup powdered milk
2/3 cup sugar
3 Tbsp. butter
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor and process until smooth.

Leftovers can be stored in a tightly sealed container for up to one week.
