Favorite Ingredients Friday

I haven't had a chance to participate in this for so long, but I wanted to be sure to do it today.

This is what I have sitting on my counter right now, it's such a wonderful dessert, brings back great memories from my Greatgrandma, and this is her recipe too, enjoy :)

For more Favorite Ingredients Friday recipes, run on over to Overwhelmed with Joy.

Arroz Doce
(Portuguese Rice Pudding)


1 1/2 quarts of milk
1 1/4 cup of uncooked white rice
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs beaten
1 cinnamon stick

Over high heat, combine cinnamon stick, sugar and milk. When bubbles form at edges, stir in rice and reduce heat to medium-low.
Cook 60 minutes, stirring often, until rice is tender. Do NOT allow to boil.

Remove from heat, remove cinnamon stick and vigorously stir in beaten eggs, a little at a time, until well incorporated. Pour into serving dish, sprinkle with ground cinnamon and serve warm.
Refrigerate the leftovers.

Now, in my family we let it cool down a bit and then eat it warm, but I have to say that the next day, it tastes just as good cold out of the refrigerator.

This makes a great dish for a get together, church potluck etc.
