THE BEST RICE PUDDING
We’ve got a sweet spot in our hearts for rice pudding. And one of our all time favorites is Mexican rice pudding – or arroz con leche. The sweetness in that perfect dessert is offset by the subtle bite of cinnamon. We’d say that iconic flavor combination was a stroke of genius for the first person who tried it. And we’re obviously glad it caught on!
We’ve added a touch of vanilla to this comforting and homey dessert. The effect it has on the overall dessert practically makes it taste like the holiday season in a bowl!
