"This is the best rice pudding receipe I've come across! Rich, creamy and full of flavor-I made my sauce with what I had on hand- strawberries, blackberries and pineapple in lemon juice and cornstarch."

"This rice pudding is mmmmmm, mmmmm good! Very easy to make, creamy, not too sweet, and seems to be fool proof! It's delicious without the sauce, but adding it makes it heavenly. I use 1% milk, and it tastes rich and wonderful."

"I have made this rice pudding since it was featured in taste of home with two exceptions I omit the cream cheese and do not make the sauce. I use whole milk, half & half, or a combination. I use jasmine rice for long grain, it doesn't stick. My husband doesn't care for pudding so it leaves more for me & my kids. We eat this cold, warm with or without cream, but its best when the chill has been knocked off."
