Let the Baking Commence....

Rice Pudding ingredients
At the beginning of this week, the "Almost There Week," I set for myself the goal of baking one batch of something or other, each day.

Not including the weekend days.  I wouldn't want to go too overboard with this baking thing.  Besides, daughter Sarah will be arriving for the holidays this weekend, and she can very capably handle the baking detail from there on.

So I decided to ease into the holiday baking, calmly and gently.  I don't even know if we can really even consider this first recipe to be Christmas Baking, but it was so easy.  If you are needing a simple dessert for one of your holiday meals, try this recipe for Old Fashioned Rice Pudding.  It takes just about two minutes to put together.

Credit for this recipe goes to Kathy Yellet, National Executive.


2/3 cup Minute rice
2 3/4 cups milk
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup raisins
whipped creme


Combine the first 8 ingredients in a one quart baking dish.

Bake at 350 degrees for one hour, stirring after 15 minutes and again at the end of the hour.

Baked and ready for final stirring
 The pudding will thicken as it stands.

Serve this pudding either warm or chilled.

Add a squirt of whipped creme and sprinkle on some cinnamon.
