HINTS AND TIPS

Dulce de leche can be made ahead of time and kept for up to 1 month in the refrigerator.
Biscuit can be made and frozen for up to 1 month.
Alternative Dulce de leche method: If you don’t have a Steam Oven, pre-heat oven on Fan Plus at 180°C. Tip the condensed milk into a 20cm by 20cm square baking tin and cover tightly with foil. Place in a large gourmet oven dish or roasting dish and add enough water to come halfway up the side of the baking tin. Bake for 2½ hours, the caramel should be a dark golden colour and firm to the touch. Uncover and cool then refrigerate for a couple of hours.
