Remember When Grandma Always Used To Make This? Yummy!
Rice pudding is cooked in a similar fashion as risotto, except it’s sweet versus savory. Using Arborio rice combined with milk and sugar, this pudding is incredibly simple to make while maintaining an impressive appeal.
When I was little, my grandmother used to cook a huge meal for our whole family right before Christmas. It was her way of bringing all of us together at least once a year, despite our busy lives. She always made a huge bowl of rice pudding for dessert, and she hid a single almond in there. Whoever got the almond, got a special Christmas present from her. Ahh, the memories! This recipe brought it all back to me.
With a creamy texture and cinnamon topping, once you take a taste you won’t be able to put your spoon down. This recipe serves 4 and is ready in under an hour. Customize your pudding by adding in dried cranberries, raisins, granola, or coconut for a different flavor.
