Since Fall is right around the corner I've been thinking about the leaves changing and all the wonderful Fall, warm, homey foods. So what better than Rice pudding. I like mine just made still warm, with a sprinkle of cinnamon...Yum!!
1 Cup short-grain white rice
1/2 tsp. salt
1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
4 Tbsp. Butter
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
(optional) 1/2 cup raisins
Cook rice as directed on box. In a double broiler or saucepot set over simmering water add cooked rice, sweetened condensed milk and butter. Cook stirring frequently until pudding thickens slightly, about 20 mins. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in vanilla. Place in individual dishes and sprinkle with cinnamon and either serve warm or chill in the refrigerator.
