“This is my mom's recipe for Rice Pudding. It's the best I've ever tasted and it gets rave reviews from everyone I serve it to. Sprinkle with nutmeg or cinnamon, if desired. For creamier pudding, use short or medium grain rice.”

The secret to any rice pudding is the timing of the sugar. It must not be added until the rice is thoroughly cooked otherwise it will forever remain hard. Those who did not like this recipe should test the rice for tenderness before adding the sugar in the final stage of the recipe.

My daughter found this recipe on the site and decided to make it last night. Erica, I wish I could give this more than five stars because it was incredible! My dad worked for Tuscan Dairy for fifty years in Union, N.J. and they made an amazing rice pudding, which I've never been able to even nearly duplicate. Thanks to you, this is pretty close! I omitted the raisins and used skim milk because it was the only thing I had in the house. The next time Ty gets a desire to make this great dessert, I'll have her use evaporated skim milk as it really replicates a light cream or a whole milk. Thanks so much!

Very easy. The first time I made this recipe I made it with long grain rice (not knowing the difference between long, med, and short) and half and half. Second time I made it with medium grain rice, skim milk and less sugar. The medium grain rice made a huge difference in the end product, do not make the mistake of using long grain rice the pudding will just not be the same! Also, no need to use half and half it was just as good with the skim milk---save yourself the calories! I liked it better with a little less sugar.
