This recipe has been in our family for four generations. It can be prepared well ahead of time, if necessary.


  • 1-1/2 cups uncooked long grain rice
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. Cook rice according to package directions. Rinse in cold water; drain. Cover and refrigerate. In a bowl, beat cream until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar and vanilla, beating until stiff peaks form. Fold into the rice. Cover and refrigerate.
  2. In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, salt, cream and corn syrup. Cook over medium heat until a thermometer reads 238° (soft-ball stage), stirring frequently. Remove from the heat; carefully stir in butter and vanilla. Cool slightly. Serve warm sauce over rice.
