Mom's Rice Pudding


  • 6 cups whole milk (any low fat milk comes out watery) 
  • 3/4 cup long grain rice 
  • 1 cup heavy or whipping cream 
  • 3/4 cup sugar 
  • 3 egg yolks beaten 
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon 
Rinse a large saucepan with cold water (don't dry). 

Pour in milk and bring to a boil. 

Stir in rice and return to boil for 1 minute. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered until rice is tender, about 55 minutes. 

In a small bowl, combine cream, sugar, egg yolks, vanilla and salt. 

When rice is tender, stir in cream mixture and heat until boiling. Pour into a large serving dish, sprinkle with cinnamon and chill at least 4 hours.
