Slow Cooker Rice Pudding

This creamy, comforting dessert takes hardly any time to assemble and can be left to cook unattended while you prepare, eat, and clean up after a dinner party. Just stir rice, milk, and sugar together in a slow cooker coated with butter and turn it on high. By the time the dinner dishes are cleared and folks are poking around for something sweet, dessert will be ready. Just before serving, stir in brown sugar, raisins, vanilla, cinnamon, and more milk to bump up the creaminess. To jazz things up for the adults, soak the raisins in warm rum for 30 minutes before stirring them in.

Game plan: The rice pudding will thicken significantly as it cools. To reheat, place the desired amount of pudding in a saucepan and add about 1/2 inch of milk. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally and adding more milk as needed, until warmed through and creamy.
