Pie Dough With Milk Powder

I recently came across a recipe for pie dough that contains milk powder. What function does milk powder serve in this scenario?

Dunno for sure. I suspect the milk powder will make the pie crust brown up more quickly, though.

According to King Arthur Flour, they add the milk powder to their pie crust recipe to add tenderness ...www.kingarthurflour.com (a thoroughly reliable and tasty piecrust) if you search for it.

Okay, that makes sense. I did think about it helping browning as well, but I've never had trouble getting a pie crust to brown, so I figured it had to be more than that.

You'll get a Maillard browning effect with the addition of powdered milk. If it isn't an item you keep in your pantry, adding a teaspoon of sugar to your pastry dough will achieve lovely browning.
