Ken's Rice Pudding

While thinking about which recipes to cook this weekend for my blog and reading articles on Food photography, I decided to make some Rice pudding, Alli's favorite dessert...I've never done food photography...have to get better lighting....I'm a nature/ lanscape and building this will take some practice.... this picture is raw, not photoshopped.

2 cups of cooked rice
1 1/2 cuos of milk
1/2 cup of cream
1/2 tsp of vanilla bean paste
1/4 tsp of salt
1/2 cups of sugar ( add more or less to taste)
2 tbls of starch
2 egg yolks
Cinnamon (for garnish)
Whipped cream ( for yumminess!!!)

In a large saucepan combine milk, rice and sugar, cook over medium heat stiring constantly for 15 minutes. Add Vanilla bean paste, stir.

Beat egg and cream, set aside.

Add starch to 1/4 cup of water, mix and slowly stir into rice mixture until it starts to thicken; Remove from heat.
Temper egg mixure by adding some of the hot liquid from the rice pudding, add to to rice pudding while stirring quickly...return to heat for 5 minutes more while stirring constantly.

I prefer to serve it warm and garish with Cinnamon and Whipped cream
(Alli likes it cold!)
