Dulce de Leche

Cooking Light

Dulce de leche (DOOL-seh-deh-LEH-chen) is Argentina's national dessert. The traditional recipe calls for whole milk to be boiled down into a sweet, fudgy paste. Our shortcut, which uses fat-free sweetened condensed milk, yields an authentic flavor with a fraction of the effort and fat.

2/3 cup (serving size: about 1 tablespoon)

1 (14-ounce) can fat-free sweetened condensed milk


Preheat oven to 400°.

Pour the sweetened condensed milk into a 9-inch pie plate, and cover with foil. Place the pie plate in a shallow roasting pan. Add enough hot water to the pan to come halfway up the sides of the pie plate. Bake the milk at 400° for 1 1/2 hours, adding additional water as needed.

Remove the pie plate from the water. Uncover, and stir milk with a whisk until smooth.
