    My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this delicious rice pudding! I did cut the recipe in half for the two of us, but we ate it up so quickly that the next time I make it, I'll make the whole batch!

    This is a great rice pudding. My daughter found it a few years ago, and I have been making it ever since.
