Argentina: Dulce de Leche

Dulce de Leche

(Caramelized Milk Sweet)

MAKES 1 CUP

Argentineans love this delectable, sweet caramelized milk, eating it in pastry, spread on toast.

Ingredients:

2 cups milk
1 cup sugar

Preparation:

Combine milk and sugar in a heavy saucepan. Stir until sugar dissolves, about 10 minutes. Place over medium-low heat and simmer, stirring every 5–10 minutes with a wooden spoon until mixture turns a light caramel color and begins to thicken, about 1 1⁄4 hours.

At this point, begin stirring constantly until mixture leaves a track on bottom of pan, about 15 minutes. Cool and serve as a spread on biscuits or toast, as a topping for ice cream, or as a pastry filling.
