Easy Creamy Rice Pudding! Mom's recipe!

I love rice pudding and I am not too particular what type it is but if you prefer creamy rice pudding instead of custard rice pudding then you must try my Mom's recipe. I make both types.  Our grandchildren love it too.  It is a very easy recipe and is so creamy, sweet and tasty.  We love to eat it while it is still warm many days and Mom sometimes would pour apricot nectar on it or you can do as I do and top it with real whipped cream.  It takes time to make this because the rice has to cook and you have to cook it on medium so allow yourself at least an hour.  Just being honest.  No rushing this super delicious recipe.  It's worth the wait!

Happy Baking and Cooking!  Enjoy!

1 half gallon whole milk
1 cup sugar
1 cup long grain rice
1 tsp. vanilla
pinch salt 
Pinch or two of cinnamon

Wash and drain rice.  Put milk in pan on low heat. Add sugar and stir until completely dissolved. Add rice to milk mixture stirring constantly so it will not stick to the bottom of the pot.

Cook on medium to high heat making sure not to allow rice to stick to bottom and burn. It will start to steam and bubble. Turn heat to medium and let simmer slowly, add vanilla  Takes about 1 hour from start to finish.   Place in large bowl to cool and then cover and refrigerate.  I doubt there will be much left of this delicious recipe.  It is yummy!!

  P.S. Make sure you use whole milk, no substitutions or it will not thicken.

  Happy Cooking!
