Traditional Rice Pudding (for MSC)

Cuisinart original

What better ending to a meal than a cup of rice pudding? The great thing about this dessert is that it can be served warm out of the cooking pot or chilled. Chilled rice pudding does set up and has a different consistency than when served warm. If not serving immediately, stir some
extra milk or water into the rice pudding to make it creamier.

2          cups Arborio rice

4          cups whole milk

2          cups heavy cream

1          vanilla bean, halved and seeds scraped
