Joy of Cooking Baked Rice Pudding

Recipe by Clevergirl7

This recipe is adapted from the 1967 Joy of Cooking cookbook. I never make it with the optional raisins or dates, just a personal preference. The original recipe calls for covering the bottom and sides of the baking dish with cookie or cake crumbs, but I omit this step, as well.
