    I was craving some K’oi lechi lately and I am so happy to have found the recipe on your page.
    These little sweet morzels bring back childhood memories remembering the time that my mother used to make them.

    Powdered milk is not a widely used ingredient here in France but luckily enough I was able to find it in an Middle- Eastern store not very far from where I live so now I can make it on a regular basis. Great! .
    Thank you! Eliane Muskus
