Creamy Rice Pudding w/Cooked Rice

Creamy Rice Pudding is one of life's simple pleasures! So rich, creamy and delicious, it is a dreamy dessert your family will love as much as mine!

Made from kitchen staple ingredients like white rice, milk, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon, rice pudding is very simple to make (yet anything but simple in flavor).

It is the perfect example of ordinary ingredients made extraordinary.

This rice pudding recipe starts with cooked rice (or even leftover rice) simmered in sweetened milk. Once thick and creamy I add in raisins and a dash of cinnamon for the perfect end to any meal.

This wholesome, heartwarming dessert is near and dear to me because it is, without question, one of my favorite desserts!
