  • 1 2/3 cups dulce de leche (from 1 1/3 14-ounce cans condensed milk)
  • ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  1. Bring milk and cream to a gentle boil in a 3-quart heavy saucepan over moderate heat.
  2. Remove from heat.
  3. Whisk in dulce de leche until dissolved (it will still be a little lumpy).
  4. Whisk in vanilla and transfer to a bowl.
  5. Chill this mixture for several hours in a covered bowl in the refrigerator or cool it quickly in an ice bath. Make sure the mixture is completely cold before freezing.
  6. Freeze chilled mixture in an ice cream maker until almost firm.
  7. Transfer ice cream to an airtight container and put in freezer to harden, for at least 1 hour.
