Good recipe. I doubled it to serve more people. Would not include the cinnamon in the recipe next time. I would prefer a light dusting of cinnamon on top, instead.

I am not normally a fan of rice pudding but today for some reason I thought I'd try it....I'd always liked it when I was a small child. I decided to give your recipe a try. The only thing I did different was to use maple extract instead of vanilla because I was out and I used skim milk because I am trying to watch the fat. It turned out delicious!! Way better than I anticipated! Thank You!!
