Dulce de leche is a popular confection in Latin America. It is made by slowly heating sugar and milk for several hours until getting a thick sauce which can be used as a spread on bread or cookies, or as a filling on many pastries. For this recipe we are using a dulce de leche from Argentina found at “El gaucho” a butchery and Latin America products’ store north of Toronto. Many large grocery stores in Canada carry dulce de leche spreads imported from different countries; find it in the ethnic or baking products aisle.
