BackstoryRice pudding… Believe it or not I was never a fan of it, until I made this. Addicted I have tried so many others but this is the one I come back to. I was PTA president for my Children’s school and we worked extremely hard publishing a book of family recipes that were handed down. I specifically sent a letter home telling them no toll house cookie type recipes will be accepted and to even include other family members that had very special recipes. And we had amazing generational recipes. This was included. Even though it was not an old generational one it was one they loved as a family and again not toll house but an amazing rice pudding. Thanks Hunt family where ever you now! I think of you Bev where ever you are hope you are well. Bev was on the board with me and she was so sweet just like her rice pudding!
