In the cookbook, I put in a recipe that's called something like "Almost Like Mom's Rice Pudding." I had to use an "almost" recipe because I couldn't, for the life of me, find the real thing. Ugh! Funny thing is, I know I've asked my sister for it more than once.
I made the almost recipe just the other day, and it was yummy, but it just wasn't mom's. I like my rice pudding fluffy, not sticky.
Well, on a fluke, I decided to do an email search just now to see, if by chance, my sister had ever emailed the recipe to me, and guess what! She DID!!! YAY!!!
I love this stuff, but I'm leaving out the raisins.
So, since it wasn't in the cookbook and so I don't EVER lose it again and have to ask my sister, here it is....
Mom's Creamy Rice Pudding
1/2 C. rice, uncooked
1/4 C. sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
2 1/2 C. milk
1/2 C. raisins (opt.)
Combine all of the ingredients in top of a double boiler. Cooked covered over boiling water until the rice is tender and milk is almost absorbed (about 1 hour), stirring frequently. Serve with milk or whipped cream.
YAY!!! Love this stuff!!!
