My grandmother use to make this for us when we were little. It was so sweet and so good. Comfort food, especially on a cold winter morning....

Definitely cook the rice with the milk and cinnamon sticks...also use pearl rice instead of long-grain. I added a 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon with the vanilla at the end...yummy! Enjoy!
