Country Rice Pudding

READY IN: 35mins
Top Review by Connie Lea

YUM - I tempered the egg before I added to the rice pudding, but not sure it actually needed the egg. I think it would still have been good without it. I did cook this in a double boiler, so took quite a bit longer, but eliminates the need to stir all the time. I also didn't add the bourban, but next time I have some Southern Comfort, I'm going to add that.

  2. Reduce heat to low and simmer , uncovered, until rice is tender and mixture begins to thicken, about 20 - 25 minutes, skimming any foam that may come to the surface. Stir in the egg and cook 2 minutes longer.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in bourbon and vanilla extract. Chill before serving.
  4. Sprinkle with Cinnamon Sugar before serving.
  5. CINNAMON SUGAR: Combine cinnamon and sugar and store in a tightly covered bowl.
