Rice Pudding

Rice pudding reminds me of my childhood, my mom always has a container of Kozy Shack rice pudding in the fridge.  We would serve up a bowl, sprinkle with cinnamon & sugar, and enjoy this unique treat.

This recipe is a very easy & quick way to enjoy this time-honored dessert.

Rice Pudding
  • 1/2 cup Arborio rice
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • pinch of salt
  • Cinnamon
In a small pot, add the rice and cover with water.  Cook on medium heat to bring to a slow boil.  Once water is boiling, cook for 5 minutes.  Drain in a colander and set aside.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In the same pot, add milk and bring to a boil.  Remove from heat, add sugar and vanilla bean, and cover for 20 minutes.  After 20 minutes, remove the vanilla bean and scrape the little seeds out with a sharp knife.  Add the seeds to the milk and stir in the pinch of salt.

Add the rice to the milk and bring to a boil.  Empty all contents into an 8x8 baking dish. 

Bake for 20 minutes, until think and bubbly.

Sprinkle with cinnamon and serve warm.
