 Dulce de Leche

All you need:

1 can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk

All you need to do:

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Pour the sweetened condensed milk into a glass pie plate. Cover tightly with foil.

Place the covered pie plate in a roasting pan. Place in the pie plate into the oven on the middle rack.

Add enough hot water to the roasting pan so the water comes up about half way up the side of the pie plate.

TIP: Check on the pan after about 30 minutes. add a little hot water to compensate for the water that has evaporated. check again after another 30 minutes.

You will need to bake this at 425 degrees for a total of 1 ¼ hours or until golden in color. Mine has always taken exactly 1 ¼ hours.

Remove from the oven. Carefully remove the pie plate from the pan and remove the foil.

Place the thickened sauce into a bowl and whisk until smooth. Allow to cool then place in a clean jar and refrigerate until use.

To Use:

It will become thick and spread-like. perfect to spread on toast or breads. To use as a sauce.. allow to warm slightly in the microwave or place the jar into a bowl of warm water.
