Cranberry Swirl Rice Pudding ~ Thanksgiving Treat

Carol Junkins


How delish would this be for a Holiday dessert? Not filling after a big meal and so yummy! For me good anytime of the year !!!
It is also a healthful (Vitamin C) snack.

Originally got recipe from my "Savoring Cape Cod" recipe book provided by the Mass. Audubon Society.
