Maple Cinnamon Rice Pudding

Maple Cinnamon Rice Pudding

1 cup arborio rice

6 cups milk

1/2 cup maple syrup

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a medium saucepan, combine rice, milk and maple syrup. Bring to a simmer, stirring often to prevent rice from sticking to the bottom of the pot. Simmer until the rice is tender, about 20-30 minutes. Once the rice is cooked, remove from heat and stir in cinnamon and vanilla. Let cool, pudding will thicken while it stands.
