    Smilyn's Note:

    My mom and grandma use to make this every Christmas or special holiday, but it had to be extra special. This is a great dessert that keeps those great memories close by. This is an old recipe so keep in mind that not everything is exact. Use your own discretion when baking. 1/2 cup of packed rasins can be added to this dish, but I prefer it plain and served warm with whipped cream.

      I made this with the vanilla bean and cinnamon stick. I found that it did not give enough flavor leaving them in for only an hour so next time I will leave them in longer. I also expected something sweeter and with more rice so I will increase the sweetner and rice the next time I make it. On the whole though it had exactly the creaminess and consistency that I was looking for.
