I wanted (don't ask me why, I don't know why!) to make Kraft Macaroni & Cheese the other day, and I had no milk. I ended up using 6 Land-O-Lakes mini moos instead.

I don't drink much milk, and keep powdered milk in my staples cupboard at all times and use it in cooking. When I have whipping cream, I sometimes mix it, about 4 or 5 to one. My former father in law, ex military, lived 100 miles from the nearest commissary and used to freeze milk. I haven't tried this, but I do freeze butter. I would try freezing milk in ice cube trays and storing it in plastic bags as an alternative. There are many items that are readily available and are virtually industrictible that I keep in my kitchen for those rainy days. Powdered milk, dried mushrooms, small jars of mushrooms, boxed stocks, etc. I do not like to start cooking and have to make a run to the store for one small item.

For a good snack, take the sweetened condensed milk and place in a bain marie(water bath)(open the can first, cover with aluminum foil). Place in a 425 oven and bake. It will caramelize into a tasty pudding in about 1 hour..

You can also pour into a pan and bake in the bain marie.

You can also make a great pudding with it by mixing with 1 cup sour cream or yogurt then stir in 1/4 cup and citrus juice(real juice, not a juice mix). It will thicken immediately. Chill before serving for best flavor.

Interesting thread, as we all have staples we fall back on. I too keep evap and dry milk on hand, and usually have half and half or heavy cream on hand as well for coffee. What kind of cookie were you making that called for milk? Mine seem to be all fat and sugar, lol!

Of course this suggestions won't do you any good if you don't already have it, but I always keep powdered milk in the house. It lasts a long time and I often use it in place of milk in baking - - especially with the high price of milk right now!
