Pure Comfort Food!



Rice pudding is pure comfort food.


This one just shouts with fall flavors and is even more comforting.


Growing up my mom and grandma made this with sweet potatoes or pumpkin, we love it all winter long.


The smell on the stove with that waft of cinnamon through the house was delightful.

Starts Off on the Stove top



The secret to this wonderful rice pudding to make it creamy, was pre cooking it on the stove top first.


Once the rice was par cooked, it finished in the oven perfectly.


It's a little work but so worth the time especially on the Thanksgiving menu of desserts.


We always had this pumpkin spiced rice pudding on the table during the holiday season.

Old Fashioned



The ingredients are good old fashioned wholesome staples.


Pumpkin, spices, whole milk using Italian style Arborio rice, is just an amazing combination of flavors.


I love Grandma's original rice pudding and her holiday version with
fruit rice pudding, also.

Best Rice Fall Flavored Rice Pudding



Yes, we had this dessert often because of the pantry ingredients were always in the house, it was an inexpensive dessert that everyone loved.


We looked forward to the spice flavors as it was so comforting with the aroma and the smell of cinnamon cooking in that delicious creamy pot of rice pudding.


Pumpkin season was always a great time in Upstate New York, we loved going on hayrides and picking out a fresh pumpkin from the pumpkin patch farms.

Shouts Holiday!



With the addition of pumpkin in rice pudding, it sure was a delicious treat, but even more special topped with that whipped cream off the top of our milk that got delivered back in the 1960's.


We actually had milk with heavy cream sitting on the top of it back then, it was so fantastic, I miss those days of having the milkman deliver our milk.


I still love making this pumpkin rice pudding in grandma memory every year, we had some great memories with this delicious baked pumpkin spiced rice pudding.

Baked Pumpkin Spiced Rice Pudding

prep time: 15 minscook time: 40 minstotal time: 55 mins
This is a delicious rice pudding, that starts off on the stove top and baked in the oven. A perfect fall comfort rice pudding dessert.

ingredients:

2 cups water ( I use coconut water)
1 cup arborio rice
3 cups milk
1 cup solid packed pumpkin or freshly made mashed sweet potato
3/4 cup honey 
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
dash salt

Garnish:
1/4 cup heavy cream whipped with a tablespoon sugar added
cinnamon sugar mixture (1 teaspoon cinnamon to 3 tablespoons sugar mixed together)
crushed graham crackers
cinnamon stick (optional)

instructions:

Simmer rice and water for around 20 minutes until soft in a  medium sized saucepan that is suitable for the oven as well.
In a large bowl whisk together milk,  pumpkin, honey, vanilla, salt and spices. While the rice is still hot, add the pumpkin mixture, stirring until well blended.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Bake until the liquid is reduced about 1/3 and is foamy looking around 40 to 50 minutes. Remove from oven and stir. 

Taste this first, if you feel you would like this sweeter, add 1 tablespoon at a time of powdered sugar and stir this in. I do not prefer this overly sweet. 

Transfer to a bowl and refrigerator overnight.


Serve with whipped cream, crushed cracker crumbs and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture.
