Joan's Rice Pudding

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by chez patty

A great tasting, quick desert. From my friend Joan's kitchen originaly, but I have sent it worldwide to internet friends. Extremely simple and extremely delicious! My fellow nurses and the docs love it when I bring it into work. Also a good way to use up leftover cooked white rice.

Rich, creamy, and delicious! I love rice pudding but always leave out the raisins :) A great (and easy) use for leftover rice. This version using cornstarch worked very well and had the perfect balance of sweet and creamy. Will make this again! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
