Luby's Macaroni and Cheese

When Madison was little she loved, loved, loved Luby's macaroni and cheese. My mom found this recipe in a Luby's cookbook and would make it for Madison every time we came to visit. It's kind of an odd recipe- and is definitely something you need a little arm strength for- but my mom swore by it!

8 ounces elbow macaroni
2 T dry milk
2 T flour
1 T butter, melted
1 1/4 cup boiling water
3 cups shredded American cheese
1/4 t salt

Cook and drain macaroni. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl, mix dry milk, flour, and butter. Gradually add boiling water, stirring constantly. Add 1 1/2 cup cheese and continue beating till smooth. Stir in macaroni, 1 cup of remaining cheese and salt. Transfer to lightly greased 2 quart baking dish. Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes. Remove foil and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 1 minute or until cheese melts.
