21 Club Rice Pudding

Here is an old favorite from the Famous New York 21 Club. I like to add a little fresh ground Nutmeg to mine right before serving it. You can find more of their recipes in The ’21 Cookbook.

    Delicious! Only change I made was to use medium grain rice, as it turns out much creamier than with long grain! I also add dried cranberries (way better than raisins) & honey glazed pecans & walnuts. Yum!
