Dulce de Leche Cortada is a  traditional dessert in Dominican Republic and other Latin American countries. It’s called leche cortada (Curdled milk) because as you add  the lemon juice  to the hot milk, it begins to divide like if it was curdled, but the milk used is fresh. It is a delicious topping for chocolate ice cream.
