Vanilla Yogurt

Since receiving a yogurt maker for Christmas, I've been searching for a go to recipe.  This one is pretty close to what I'm looking for.  This is great on top of granola with fresh fruit!

Vanilla Yogurt

4 cups milk
1/2 cup powdered dry milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
4 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup plain yogurt with active cultures

Set yogurt starter out to warm to room temperature.

Heat the milk to almost a boil- about 180 F.  Remove from heat and cool the milk to 110 F. Add dry milk, vanilla and sugar; stir well.   Stir in yogurt starter.
Pour yogurt into jars and incubate for 12 hours.  Refrigerate at least 3 hours before serving.
