Total time: 1 hour 10 minutes
Yield: 4-5 servings

Creamy rice pudding served warm and bursting with cinnamon flavor.


1/2 cup uncooked white rice
1 1/2 cups water
1 lemon rind
1 cinnamon stick
1 quart whole milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
Cook the rice with water, lemon rind, and cinnamon stick until soft. Remove the lemon rind and cinnamon stick and drain off any excess water. (Most of the water should have been absorbed into the rice.)

Add milk, salt, vanilla extract, and sugar to rice and cook over low heat, uncovered, stirring occasionally until thick, about one hour.

Sprinkle with cinnamon and serve.
