Reviews forChristmas Rice Pudding
"Good but a bit too sweet. Also a small grain rice is best. I also added vanilla which made it tastier and took the edge off the sweetness a bit. Next time less sugar and add tsp. Vanilla. Also my rice took half the time to cook and absorb the milk."
"Added vanilla - and would use less sugar next time. Though it takes time, it is a very easy recipe."
"Always a favourite of my man friend"
"A good recipe. I halved it and it was plenty. I would maybe cut down on the sugar just a little as it was pretty sweet. Also, it only cooked about 30 min with the 1/2 batch."
