2/3 cup rice
2 cups water
1 quart 1/2 and 1/2
Put above in a medium to large heavy saucepan. Bring mix to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 25 minutes. Remove from heat.
2 egg yolks into a one cup measuring cup. Beat slightly then add enough cream (my preference)canned evaporated milk or whole milk to measure 2/3 cup. Mix well then add to rice while stirring
Add 2/3 cups sugar and one teaspoon vanilla extract. Stir, cool and eat ( Incredible when still warm)
I sprinkle some cinnamon over the top. I have tried cooking with the powdered cinnamon and didn't like the beige hue it gave the pudding. I also tried a cinnamon stick and it broke up into tiny pieces that I didn't like. You can add raisins if you like (I don't) but I would plump them up first and add with eggs and sugar.
I hope you enjoy this. Everyone that I have ever served this too loves it for it's creaminess and they always ask for the recipe.
Happy New Year to you.
