Rice pudding is one of my favorite Italian desserts (besides cannolis I love cannolis…)
This is a very simple recipe and is very creamy and delicious.
I found it from http://www.huffingtonpost.com
7 oz. white rice that’s used for risotto
3 1/4 cups whole milk
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla
7 tablespoons sugar
Pinch of salt
Place rice in a strainer with very small holes (so the rice doesn’t fall through, duh) and rinse under water and drain.
Place drained rice in a medium saucepan, fill with water to cover the rice and let boil.
Once the water boils, turn the heat down to medium-high and let sit for 5 minutes.
Drain rice again and place back in saucepan.
Add milk, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and a pinch of salt.
Let mixture come to a boil and then immediately turn to very low heat, cover saucepan, and let cook for 35 minutes, stirring frequently.
Once mostly all of the liquid has been absorbed (after 35 minutes), take pot off the heat and add in butter and the rest of the sugar and mix.
Serve in bowls immediately, or refrigerate for later!
