TWD: Arborio Rice Pudding

This week's recipe was chosen by Isabelle of Les Gourmandises d'Isa. As always, you can find the recipe listed on her site and you can see what other TWD bloggers did here.

I'm a huge fan of pudding, so I looked forward to this week. I've never made rice pudding and I've eaten it only a couple of times. I like it! The arborio rice adds substantial texture to the pudding compared to other rice puddings I've had.

Thanks to the P&Q section of the website, I learned from other bloggers that the pudding takes longer to cook than the recipe states. Dorie herself commented that there was an error in the printed recipe and it was actually supposed to cook for 55 min., not 30. Thanks Dorie! Mine only took 45 minutes.

This was a simple recipe with only four ingredients. The end result - delicious!

Next week is Thanksgiving. There's going to be a whole lot of baking going on. Our next TWD recipe is the Thanksgiving Twofer Pie - pumpkin and pecan combined, oh my!

Sounds like you did a great job with this one! I'm a little skeered of the two-fer pie too.

I liked the arborio rice in pudding, too! That was a new one for me. The two-fer pie will be, too.

I'm glad you liked it. I think I'm going to pass on the twofer pie just because I am traveling this week, but I know it will be delicious!
