Why I Love This Recipe

My Mother loved Arroz con Leche. On any given night she would get old rice and make some. It was delicious. One of the few things she would cook for us. My dad, the "Chef" would do the cooking in my household.

Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 cup Arborio rice
1-1/2 cups Water
1 Small Cinnamon Stick
4 Cups Milk
1 Cup Sugar
1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
Cinnamon Powder, for garnish
(This is enough for 8 servings)


In a Medium pot, Add the water, cinnamon stick and the rice until rice is soft, about 10 minutes or so. (When it starts boiling turn it down to medium heat.)

Add the milk, salt, vanilla and sugar. Bring to just under a boil and turn down heat, uncovered, until it gets thick and rice has absorbed most of the milk. Cook at medium-low heat, uncovered, until it

gets thick and rice has absorbed most of the milk. (The recipe tells you to stir once in a while, but I do it about every 15 minutes.) Simmer it for about an hour.

Fish out the cinnamon stick and pour into a bowl or several individual bowls

and sprinkle with powdered cinnamon.
