"My mom would always make this delicious, creamy rice pudding when we were kids. If a thicker rice is desired, increase rice to 1 1/4 cups and add another egg. Sprinkle with cinnamon."

I've made this recipe many times and always get compliments on it. I sometimes add a bit of vanilla too.

My mom use to make this but she never added vanilla. if you add lemon peels, it takes away the strong taste of the egg.

If you like rice pudding, this is the stuff you want! As you can see in my photo, I served it to company with strawberry and kiwi slices, garnished with mint. Delicious!
