      Rice Pudding

      This recipe is originally from Allrecipes.com. I made some changes to it which I will write below it.


      Creamy Rice Pudding
      This is my mom's recipe for Rice Pudding. It's the best
      I've ever tasted and it gets rave reviews from everyone I
      serve it to. Sprinkle with nutmeg or cinnamon, if desired.
      For creamier pudding, use short or medium grain rice. Prep
      Time: approx. 25 Minutes. Cook Time: approx. 20 Minutes.
      Ready in: approx. 45 Minutes. Makes 4 servings.
      Printed from Allrecipes, Submitted by Erica G.

      3/4 cup uncooked white rice
      2 cups milk, divided
      1/3 cup white sugar
      1/4 teaspoon salt
      1 egg, beaten
      2/3 cup golden raisins
      1 tablespoon butter
      1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

      Directions
      1 In a medium saucepan, bring 1 1/2 cups water to a
      boil. Add rice and stir. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for
      20 minutes.
      2 In another saucepan, combine 1 1/2 cups cooked rice, 1
      1/2 cups milk, sugar and salt. Cook over medium heat until
      thick and creamy, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in remaining 1/2
      cup milk, beaten egg and raisins. Cook 2 minutes more,
      stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and stir in butter and
      vanilla. Serve warm.


      To make this lower calorie and lower in fat, I replaced the regular milk with fat free evaporated (not condensed) milk. Instead of sugar, I used Splenda. The pourable kind measures cup for cup with "real" sugar. I left out the raisins (ick) and the butter.
      With an extra sprinkle of cinnamon and some low fat cool whip on top, this was really tasty.

        Wow Faery, you're quick!! Here's one from me:

        Cinnamon Nut Sour Cream Cake

        3 C flour
        1/2 tsp baking soda
        1 C (2 sticks) butter or margarine (it tastes better with butter)
        2 1/2 C granulated sugar, divided
        1 tsp vanilla extract
        6 eggs (large)
        1 C sour cream
        1 tsp ground cinnamon
        1 C chopped walnuts

        Oven at 325 degrees. Mix flour and baking soda in small bowl. Beat butter and 2 1/4 C of the sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Blend in vanilla. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add flour mixture alternately with sour cream, beating after each addition until smooth.

        Pour 1/2 of the batter into greased and floured 12 C fluted tube pan or 10 inch tube pan (Bundt pan works here). Mix remaining 1/4 sugar and cinnamon; stir in walnuts. Sprinkle over batter in pan. To with remaining batter.

        Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes to 1 hour and 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan and cool completely on wire rack.

        Top with sprinkled powdered sugar or a powdered sugar glaze (powdered sugar and milk until thin enough, but not runny to pour over cake).

        Bon Appetit!

          I made this one 2 weeks ago and it was quite tasty.

          Cream Cheese-Apple Crisp

          Topping
          1 1/2 C quick-cooking oatmeal
          1 1/3 C all purpose flour
          1 C packed brown sugar
          3 tsp ground cinnamon
          3/4 C butter, chilled, cut up

          Apples
          6 C peeled chopped apples (1/2 inch pieces - about 4 large apples)
          1/3 C sugar
          2 Tbl flour
          1 tsp ground cinnamon
          1/4 tsp salt

          Filling
          8 oz pkg. cream cheese, room temp.
          1/2 C sugar
          2 eggs (large)
          2 Tbl flour
          2 Tbl milk

          Heat oven to 350F. For topping: In large bowl, stir together oatmeal, 1 1/3 flour, brown sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Press half the mixture into bottom of 13 x9 inch glass baking dish; reserve remaining mixture for topping.

          For apples: In large bowl, toss together all apple ingredients until apples are coated. Spread over crust in pan.

          For filling: In large bowl, beat cream cheese and 1/2 C sugar at medium speed until smooth. Add eggs, 2 Tbl flour and milk; beat until combined. Spread over apple mixture; sprinkle with reserved oatmeal mixture.

          Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown and apples are tender. Cool on wire rack.

          Makes about 12 servings (6 in my house).

                    Sour Cream Raisin Bread With Peach Ice Cream

                    I make the ice cream first, so that it has a chance to freeze.
                    ************
                    Peach Ice Cream
                    (this has the consistency of a soft-serve ice cream)
                    Prep: 5 minutes Freeze: 40 minutes Ripen: 4 hours

                    4 cups half and half, light cream or milk
                    1 1/2 cups sugar
                    1 tablespoon vanilla
                    2 cups whipping cream
                    4 cups fresh or frozen (thawed) cut up, peeled peaches
                    ***
                    1) In a large bowl combine half-and-half, sugar, and vanilla. Stir till sugar dissolves. Stir in whipping cream.
                    2) in blender blend peaches till nearly smooth. (should be about 2 cups) stir blended fruit into ice-cream mixture.
                    3) Freeze ice-cream mixture in an ice-cream freezer according to manfacturer's directions. Let ripen 4 hours (let it sit in it for 4 hours)

                    (*TIP* Before I got an ice-cream freezer, I would buy the cheapest vanilla store bought ice cream, put it into the blender after I had blended the peaches and mixed it together. Then I'd put it in plastic bowl with plastic wrap on the top and put it in the freezer til it was hardened. )

                    Sour Cream Raisin Bread
                    1 1/2 cups sour cream
                    1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
                    1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
                    1 cup granulated sugar
                    2 eggs
                    1/2 cup raisins
                    1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
                    2 teaspoons baking powder
                    2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
                    1/2 teaspoon salt
                    1/4 cup firml packed brown sugar
                    1/4 cup chopped walnuts
                    *******
                    Preheat oven to 350*F. Grease and flour a large (9 inch) loaf pan.

                    In a large bowl stir together the sour cream and baking soda. Set aside for 5 minutes. Add the melted butter, granulated sugar, eggs and raisins and whisk until blended. Set aside.

                    In a small bowl stir and toss together the flour, baking powder, 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon and the salt. Add to the sour cream mixture and stir just until blended.

                    Spread evenly in the prepared pan. Stir together the remaining 1 teaspoon cinnamon, the brown sugar and walnuts. Sprinkle over the batter. Bake until a thin wooden skewer inserted in teh center of the loaf comes out clean. (65-75 minutes). Cool in the pan for 15 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

                    Serve slices of the bread with the peach ice cream on top.

                        Ok here's three really yummy recipes! Enjoy!

                        My Favorite Strawberry Shortcake

                        1 quart strawberries, sliced
                        ½ cup sugar
                        1/3 cup shortening
                        2 cups all-purpose flour
                        3 tablespoons sugar
                        3 teaspoons baking powder
                        1 teaspoon salt
                        ¾ cup milk
                        Margarine or butter, softened
                        Whipped Cream

                        1. Mix strawberries and ½ cup sugar. Let stand 1 hour.
                        2. Heat oven to 450
                        3. Cut shortening into flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, the baking powder and salt in medium bowl, using pastry blender or crisscrossing 2 knives, until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Stir in milk just until blended.
                        4. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface. Gently smooth into ball. Knead 20 to 25 times. Roll ½ inch thick. Cut into 3-inch squares. Place about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
                        5. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
                        6. Split shortcakes horizontally in half while hot. Spread margarine on split sides. Fill with strawberries; replace tops. Top with strawberries and whipped cream.
                        I put these in the oven right when everyone starts eating dinner, then take them out and let them cool a little while people finish up.


                        Victoria Sponge Cake
                        2 cups all purpose wheat flour
                        1 cup brown sugar
                        3 teaspoons baking powder
                        1 egg or egg substitute
                        ¼ cup plus ½ tablespoon shortening
                        1-1/3 cups water
                        flavor of your choice (I used two tablespoons vanilla)
                        1. Preheat oven to 375° F.
                        2. Mix the first four ingredients together. Add the shortening and mix well. Add the water and flavor and mix 2 minutes.
                        3. Pour into a greased 8 inch cake pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until the middle is firm to the touch.
                        4. Carefully flip the cake out of the pan onto a wire cooling rack or plate. Let cool. If keeping for over 12 hours, cover with wax paper.


                        Upside-Down French Toast
                        1-1/2 sticks unsalted butter, cut into pieces
                        1-1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
                        1-1/2 cups chopped pecans
                        6 large eggs
                        1-1/2 cups whole milk
                        2 tsp. vanilla
                        Pinch of salt
                        10 to 12 1-inch-thick slices of white bread
                        Nutmeg
                        1. Preheat the oven to 350؛ F.
                        2. While the oven heats up, divide the butter between two 9x13-inch baking dishes or skillets. Place them in the oven until the butter melts.
                        3. Remove pans from oven and sprinkle the brown sugar over the butter, dividing between dishes. Sprinkle the pecans evenly over the brown sugar, dividing equally.
                        4. In a large bowl, beat together eggs, milk, vanilla, and salt.
                        5. Dip the bread slices in the egg mixture and place in baking dishes. Pour the egg mixture over the bread. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to overnight.
                        6. Uncover and bake 40 to 45 minutes, or until the toast is lightly golden. Invert slices onto warm plates. Lightly sprinkle the nutmeg over the slices and serve with berries or jam on the side.

                            Creamy Chocolate Pie

                            (I should preface this flurry of posts by saying that I've been collecting recipes for about 4 years now.)

                            CREAMY CHOCOLATE PIE

                            6 (1.45 oz) milk chocolate w/Almonds candy bars
                            2 tbsp hot water
                            8 oz frozen whipped topping -- thawed
                            1 piecrust, 9"

                            Place candy bars and water in top of double boiler; bring water to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cook until candy bars melt. Cool about 20 minutes. Gradually fold in whipped topping. Spoon mix into piecrust. Chill 8 hours. Yield: about 8 servings.

                              2 (3 oz) packages instant vanilla pudding mix
                              3 c milk
                              1 (8 oz) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
                              1 (16 oz) package chocolate graham crackers
                              ¼ c milk
                              1/3 c unsweetened cocoa powder
                              1 c white sugar
                              2 tbsp butter
                              1 tsp vanilla extract

                              In a large bowl, combine pudding mix and 3 c milk; mix well. Fold in whipped topping and beat with mixer for 2 minutes. In a buttered 9x13” baking dish, spread a layer of graham crackers on the bottom of the dish. Spread ½ of the pudding mixture over crackers; then top with graham crackers. Spread remaining pudding over crackers. Top second pudding layer with another layer of crackers.
                              To make topping: In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine ¼ c milk, cocoa and sugar and allow to boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and add butter and vanilla. Mix well and cool. Pour sauce over graham cracker layer and refrigerate until set; serve.
