When my children were young, our family was on a tight budget, and to save money, I would often use powdered milk when I baked. It worked great for baking when the recipe called for milk.
There were times when I cut back the regular milk for drinking, with some mixed up powdered milk.
The children did not mind this blend on their cereal, but to drink a glass of the powdered milk mixed with regular milk that was a different story.
My husband could always tell the difference and he let me know about it.
Each week I would bake a different cookie recipe for everyone’s lunches, and I discovered a cookie recipe that would give added calcium into our diets.
I share it here with you.
