Dinah Shore's Rice Pudding...

Simmer (covered) for ~7 minutes or until dry:

1 Cup Water
1/2 Cup dry rice

Add and simmer (covered) for 1 hour:

4 Cups Milk
4 TBSP Butter

Beat and add in slowly:

1/2 Cup Sugar
3 Whole Eggs
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract

Stir and continue cooking until thick. Place in individual containers or one large dish and refrigerate.

The recipe above is the one that was published in a local newspaper many, many,many moons ago. Below I will give you the nutritional information on this one and the one I made with the substitutes. My substitutes were using soy milk instead of whole milk, egg beaters instead real eggs, Land O Lakes Light Butter with Canola Oil and Splenda instead of sugar. The nutritional values are for 1/2 cup serving.
