Make Ahead Monday-Magix Mix

You may or may not have heard of this but if you have not tried it-then what are you waiting for??? Magic Mix is made from flour, powdered milk and butter. You can use it to make a white sauce, condensed soups, homemade pudding or Alfredo sauce.  I make a batch and then keep it in the fridge.  It is not something that I use super often but when I need it-boy is it ever handy.  I found this recipe at Everyday Food Storage.

Here is the recipe:
2 1/3 cups powdered milk
1 cup flour (all purpose) or a 1/2 cup cornstarch
2 sticks (1 cup) butter at room temp.

Put all ingredients in a large bowl.  Mix with an electric hand mixer until it looks like cornmeal.  Keep mix tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to 8 months.

To use to make a basic white sauce:
2/3 cup magic mix
1 cup water
Bring to a boil in a saucepan.  If you want to make it into a cheese sauce add shredded cheese.  Season with salt and pepper and any other desired seasonings.
Check out the website for lots of ideas of how to use your magic mix and other food storage ideas.
