Dulce de leche II & III

My second batch of dulce de leche ice cream was more sucessful. This time I used 1 cup of cream, 1 cup of 2% milk, 1 cup of dulce de leche and 4 egg yolks, milk/cream and eggs were cooked separately and then all mixed together, strained, allowed to cool and frozen. I still don’t understand what the purpose of cooking is, however.
The taste of this batch was stronger (it had a greater proportion of dulce de leche) and I thought it was just as smooth. Kathy liked the first batch better, but Mike and I preferred this one.
I’m now making my 3rd batch. I used 1 cup cream, 1 1/2 cup nonfat milk (all left at home), and probably 1 1/2 cup dulce de leche. The truth is I didn’t measure it, I just keep adding it until it was very sweet. I wanted to add eggs as well, but I overcooked them so I’m not sure how much egg were left in the mix after I strained it. We’ll see how it turns out. I’ve also runned out of chocolate, so this will be plained dulce de leche, not dulce de leche granizado like my last two batches.
