Rice Pudding

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!

Now go visit Colleen at And Baby Makes Five to find some other good recipes.

I remember eating it!! It was super yummy!! I have made it for the boys a couple of times but they weren't really into it. Nate loves the cold version that you can get in a cup like pudding!! It isn't as good as homemade but a great snack when you are in a hurry or packing a lunch. They are also a good low points snack.
