Old-Fashioned Rice Custard
I don't remember where or how I found this dessert. When I took it to a family reunion many years ago, however, a great-uncle was sure I'd used my great-grandmother's recipe!
Church suppers are among the places I've carried my rice custard. At home, I like to have it warm for dinner. Then, the next morning, I'll frequently enjoy the leftovers cold for my breakfast.
