Rice pudding has been a favorite of ours for a long time. In the years when the kids were young and money was tight it was an inexpensive and yummy after school treat. Recently Bud got a new recipe from his sister and he has made it several times. We like it warm or cold!
Bring two cups of water to a boil. Add 2 cups of instant rice and set aside.
In a large saucepan combine:
2 cups milk
1 cup half & half
3 egg yokes
3/4 cup sugar
Bring to a rolling boil stirring constantly.
2 T cornstarch mixed with a little milk until smooth
pinch of salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. almond flavoring
Add cooked rice.
Stir until desired thickness.
You can also add meringue over the top and bake. I like cinnamon on top and others like a few raisins thrown in. Yummy!
