    Another one of my delicious family recipes!! In Portugal it's called Arroz Doce and it's, generally, made of rice, sugar, milk, eggs, cinnamon and lemon peel and it's oh so good!!

  What u're gonna need is:

-> 3 eggs yolks                                           ->Cinnamon and cinnamon sticks         ->2 pans                      
-> 150 grams of Sugar                                ->125g of Rice                                    ->1 large bowl
-> 1 lemon                                                  ->7,5 dl of Milk                                   ->1 wooden spoon
->Water                                                      ->Salt

1st Step:

Lead to heat a pot with water, seasoned with salt. When the water starts boiling add the rice and let it cook for about 2 minutes. At the same time bring the milk to boil with the lemon peel and 2 open up cinnamon stick.
2nd Step:

Add the egg yolks with 150 grams of sugar and with the wooden spoon stir until a homogeneous mixture of yellowish colour.

3rd Step:

Drain the rice well and soak it in milk to a boil. Let it cook uncovered over low heat.

4th Step:

On low heat, add the yolk mixture with the sugar and stir it continuously without letting it boil for a few minutes.

5th Step:

Pour the rice on serving plates and garnish with cinnamon.

Et Voilá!!

  I advice you to wait a couple of hours before eating it, let it cold down a bit or otherwise you'll get a stomach ache and will have to go running to the bathroom...juts saying!So try not to eat while it's hot.

  Usually this is a dessert of the Christmas season ... but we are kinda greedy so we thought what the hell i really wanna do it and eat it obviously!

  Oh and just so you know if you're allergic to milk you can always use soy milk, there's no problem. It can be less sweet than normally but for my sister and I, we're allergic to milk, we found that we prefer the soy milk to the regular one it's less cloying and sweet.

Bom Apetite!
