Sweetened condensed milk nondairy

In my quest to make some of my favorite Christmas cookies I needed to first make sweetened condensed milk that was dairy free. I looked at lots and lots of recipes and I came up with a mix of the ones I like the most.

Dairy free Sweetened condensed milk
3 cups of milk substitute (I used Flax)
1/2 and 2Tbs sugar
1 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt

Mix your milk and sugar together in a heavy bottom sauce pan. Heat on Medium to Medium-Low heat stirring constantly until it is reduced to one cup. This will take a good hour or so. It will be thinner than you think it should be. I over reduced mine and then had to add milk back to it. After it is reduced and off the heat add vanilla and salt to reduced milk. Store in fridge.
