Baked Rice Pudding

This simple rice pudding is finished in the oven instead of on the stove. It is comfort food at it's finest.



    I had some extra egg yolks after making macaron. I am not one to just throw perfectly good food away, so I had to come up with something.  So, I added a little extra rice to the pot I already had going for the golumpki and dessert was born!



      A lot of rice pudding recipes call for it to be chilled.  I like mine warm.  The still warm custard full of rice, vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon can't be beat.  I normally don't add the raisins, but happened to have them on hand.  So, I figured why not?!  I made it with an organic brown rice I buy in super bulk... but my husband would have preferred white rice.  (He also prefers white bread, pasta etc. but he rarely gets his way!)
