Swedish Rice Ring

This recipe, which originated in Sweden, is famous at church suppers with our Minnesota neighbors. It's a delicious addition at family gatherings and parties, too. I usually make a double batch because it's so good! —Lori Jeane Schlecht, Wimbledon, North Dakota

    OK, but not fantastic.

    Looks like a great basic recipe but will make with some vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar for flavor. My German father made the best rice pudding with a cinnamon/wine sauce. Nice to know that MD 20/20 wine I usable in real recipes. Will rate when I make in a couple of weeks (broke foot issue at present)

    Love this dessert! Use organic whipping cream and raspberries for a different taste.
