This Dulce de Leche Pumpkin Pie is a twist on a classic! Dulce de leche is used in the pumpkin pie filling, resulting in a lush filling with caramelized sugar undertones.
To speed things up, you can use a pre-made pie shell, or purchased pie dough, instead of making your own. If you cannot find dulce de leche, see the Note at the bottom about making your own from condensed milk. Note: If you cannot find prepared dulce de leche, you can make your own on the stovetop, using a can of sweetened condensed milk. Place the can of condensed milk in a deep saucepan, and fill the pan with water so that the can is completely submerged. Bring the water to a simmer and allow it to simmer for 4 hours. Several times an hour, check the saucepan to make sure that the water is still covering the top of the can, and add water as necessary. After 4 hours, remove the can and let it cool completely before using it. You can also just use condensed milk in this recipe, to make a "normal" pumpkin pie instead of a dulce de leche version.
