Christmas is finally here, the most wonderful time of the year!!!. I made dessert for you my lovely readers!. So, I have officially given you the first present...
It's Arroz con Leche or Rice Pudding.
It's a Latin dessert. I bet some of you have tried it before. The recipe varies in every country, I know that in Colombia they add some raisins and some other spices. Here in Venezuela is common to make it with cinnamon mmm... Delicious!
I'll share my recipe with you, but don't tell anyone, it's a secret ;)
- 1 cup of rice
- 2 1/2 cups of water
- 4 cups of milk
- 1 cup of sugar (If you want it sweeter you can add some more, I like it with just one)
Pinch of salt
In a saucepan over medium heat, cook the water, rice and salt. When the rice is soft and the grain begin to slit open add the 4 cups of milk, cinnamon sticks and sugar. Cook on medium-low heat until creamy. I would say about 30 mins. Mix constantly so the milk won't burn. Remove from heat and let it chill. Garnish with powdered cinnamon and ENJOY!.
Thanks for visiting and Feliz Navidad to you all!!!
