Creamy Rice Pudding w/ dried cranberries

Carol Junkins


Does anyone still make the old time favorite creamy rice pudding?
I remember my mom making it. Now I add dried cranberries instead of raisins, but you can put any berry or fruit in it of course.

This recipe and picture came from allrecipes that I have been using.
