    Muffin Goddess's Note:

    Lovely Brazilian dessert recipe from the CookBrazil website (I make this one often). Not exactly a dieter's dream, but some fat-free ingredients can be substituted to cut the calorie and fat count without compromising the dish. Although prep and cook times are long, very little of it is hands-on (chilling time and boiling of the dulce de leche are included).

    DULCE DE LECHE

    COOKIE LAYER

    • 1 (7 ounce) package maria cookies (see note below)
    • 1 cup milk (I use skim or fat-free half & half)

    PAVE

    Directions:

    1. 1
      NOTE: Maria cookies are usually found in the ethnic/Hispanic foods section of grocery stores. Hard ladyfingers or graham crackers may be substituted.
    2. 2
      Remove label from condensed milk can.
    3. 3
      Place UNOPENED can in a large saucepan and cover it with water.
    4. 4
      Boil for 1 to 1. 5 hours, making sure that the top of the can is always covered with at least a half-inch of water to prevent an explosion (if the water level becomes too low, just add some more hot water to the pan until can is sufficiently covered).
    5. 5
      Remove can from water with tongs or a strainer and set aside to cool.
    6. 6
      Allow can to come to room temp before opening (hot can is under pressure and will spray you if opened).
    7. 7
      With a mixer, beat the butter/margarine and sugar until well-mixed (3-5 min. depending on strength of your mixer).
    8. 8
      Add yolks, one by one, beating well after each addition.
    9. 9
      Add cocoa powder now if you want a chocolate pavé (very good this way).
    10. 10
      Beat in vanilla extract and heavy cream (beat only until mixture is homogeneous and fluffy- it will become grainy if overmixed).
    11. 11
      Pour milk or half-and-half in a shallow dish for moistening cookies.
    12. 12
      In a 2-quart glass casserole or 8x8" dish, dip cookies one by one and form a layer to cover the bottome of the casserole.
    13. 13
      Next, spread half of the butter-cream mixture over the cookies.
    14. 14
      Top with another layer of moistened cookies and rest of the butter-cream mixture, ending with a layer of moistened cookies.
    15. 15
      Spread entire can of room-temp dulce de leche over the dessert.
    16. 16
      Sprinkle with roasted peanuts, and decorate with maraschino cherries that have been patted dry.
    17. 17
      Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnite to allow layers to fully blend.

      This was much easier to make then I had thought it would be! It was a very sweet dessert, so a small portion is all you need :) I had never heard of boiling the can of sweetened cond. milk and I really like how it turned out! Made for PAC spring '10.
