Melkos ~

A real treat...soft, comfort food.....
my husband's favourite food......

8 cups of milk
1 cup flour (all purpose)
1 tsp salt
2 T ground cinnamon
1 t baking powder
2 T butter
2 T milk
(I halved the quantities and also added sugar to our taste with the milk)

In a deep saucepan over a medium heat, heat the milk with the sugar until warm.
In a mixing bowl combine the flour, salt, b/powder and cinnamon
Rub the butter into the mixture, then add the 2 T milk and combine until the mixture resembles bread  crumbs.
Add this buttery flour mixture to the warm milk and simmer for 20 minute,stirring occasionally.
Serve hot in teacups or small bowls, sprinkled with a little cinnamon sugar.
