This is another recipe adapted from one submitted during our holiday recipe contest. This one comes from Terry Ann M. of Oaklyn, NJ. Her original recipe was called “Hasty Holiday Rice Pudding” and used Egg Nog ice cream, but you can also make it with Turkey Hill French Vanilla ice cream.
You have to admit, rice pudding is really underrated as far as desserts go. Not only is it incredibly easy to make, but it’s delicious. It really is! If you try this recipe and agree, let me know.
FRENCH VANILLA RICE PUDDING
2 1/4 cups of Turkey Hill French Vanilla ice cream
1/3 cup craisins (cranberry raisins)
1 Granny Smith apple, pared, cored, sliced
3/4 cup of instant rice
Optional garnish: whipped cream, cinnamon
In a medium saucepan, combine the ice cream, craisins and apple. Bring to boiling. Stir in the Rice, cook and stir one minute. Cover, remove from heat, let sit 5 minutes. Serve warm or chilled (warm in the winter or cold in the summer, if you’d like). Top with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkling of cinnamon (optional).
