Dulce De Leche Ice Cream Cake

“I invented this recipe about six months ago when requested to bring a frozen dessert to a holiday potluck. Since then I've made it about once a month, and it is always a hit. I gave one away as a hostess gift to a friend when she invited us for Friday night dinner, and got a phone call the following week to say that the leftovers were all finished and her daughter had gone into mourning over the fact. I use Rivka's Dulce De Leche Heavenly Ice Cream in the recipe, but you can use any brand or your own version of homemade ice cream.”
