This is great in a bind. It's quick and less expensive than the canned variety. I use it frequently and none of the recipes that I have used it in have suffered.

I followed the recipe exactly and found mine wasn't thickening at all until cold. It had a strong powdered milk scent before baking and unfortunately tasted powdered-milky after baked as well. I used it for seven layer bars and would not do that again. I won't make this again and am glad I didn't need these to serve these bars to anyone. The canned SCM isn't as expensive as the wasted ingredients to make it and tossing your finished product out.

I ran out of sweetened condensed milk and needed something in a hurry, so I looked here. After using this recipe I don't want to ever buy sweetened condensed milk again. I'll just make it! Just be careful because it gets really thick quick.

This is a fantastic recipe and so easy! I didn't have any regular powdered milk, so I used the powdered vanilla coffee creamer I had in the cuboard and it turnes out delicious! I used it for "Brown Family's Favorite Pumpkin Pie" from this site and the result was mouth watering to say the least! Thank you so much!!

I tried this recipe tonight and I have to say it is awsome! I used a hand blender and it worked well, I think it made it nice and creamy. Thank you for sharing such a great recipe.

This is so easy and yummy! I used this when I was out of canned variety and will use it again. Have tried other recipes for this, but this one is so easy. Just put everything in the blender and it's finished in a flash.

I have to say,this recipe save me when I ran out of the canned type and needed scm asap! I used a hand mixer and it turned out great! It had a nice texture and with this recipe,at least you know it does not contain any preservatives and doesn't have that canned taste,although it is a little similar,because it's been packaged in a can,it gives it a much artificial flavor.With this recipe,at least I know it's freshly made and no chemicals in it.
