Pineapple Rice Pudding
THIS WONDERFUL old recipe was a treat during the Depression. We didn't have dairy topping in those days, so we enjoyed it with real, heavy cream.
Mother served this as a special treat for our family. During celebrations we got to eat it in glass dishes with a cherry on the top.
