My favorite desserts always revolve around cherries. Cherry cheesecake, cherry pie, cherry cobbler. Why does cherry pie filling have to be so delicious? My mom has the BEST cherry pie recipe ever but I always hate to make it because I don’t typically keep sweetened condensed milk on hand (even though I SHOULD!) and it’s kind of expensive too. So when I discovered you can make this magical ingredient using your food storage POWDERED MILK I was just thrilled and had to share my joy with you all. So thanks to my dear mother, here is a fantastic dessert you will have to try yourself!
