    Rice Pudding with Vanilla Bean (Arroz con Leche a la Vainilla)

    The definition of comfort food changes from culture to culture, but in our home, arroz con leche is a classic family treat. This version is slightly more aromatic than the standard version of arroz con leche, with a fresh fragrant vanilla bean simmered along with cinnamon. And even though many of us associate this dessert with our childhood, arroz con leche can certainly shine in grown up settings - serve it warm, topped with ripe berries, butter toasted salted pecans, or drizzled with a few drops of coffee liqueur.


    Ingredients
    6
    cups
    whole milk
    1
    stick
    cinnamon
    1
    vanilla bean split in two lengthwise
    1
    cup
    uncooked rice
    3/4 - 1
    cup
    granulated sugar
    Directions
    Pour the milk into a 2 quart saucepan, and add the cinnamon stick and split vanilla bean. Add in the rice. Stir constantly until the milk comes to a boil, lower to a bubbling simmer, and continue to stir constantly for 30 minutes.
    The milk should thicken significantly in the last 8 minutes of cooking. Once the pudding has cooked for 30 minutes, remove from the heat and add the desired amount of sugar. Serve warm.
