Put the sweetened condensed milk in a double boiler or place the open can in boiling water, stirring frequently for about an hour (until the milk turns thicker and light, nutty brown). This is the short way to make dulce de leche.
I still think that sounds disgusting. Pie crust getting all soggy mixed with ice cream? No, no, no. Pie is meant to be pie – crisp crust encasing a sweet and soft fruit filling. A milkshake is meant to be a milkshake – cool ice cream blended with milk and flavoring. Give me a piece of pie a la mode any day over this perversion of both the pie and the milkshake.
But averagebetty is willing to give it a try:
Everything good in life should produce a feeling of uncertainty as “whether to be more wowed or disgusted.” Love it.
What do you think, readers? Is the pie shake pure brilliance or just purely disgusting?
