IRISH CREAM RICE PUDDING
1 quart whole milk
1 cup arborio rice
2/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup dried currants, plumped in warm water and drained
1/2 cup Irish cream liqueur
Butter cookies (for serving)
Preheat your oven to 300°.
Meanwhile, butter a 9-inch square baking dish.
In a medium saucepan, bring 3 cups milk to a simmer. Add the rice and sugar and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
Spread the rice mixture in the prepared dish, cover loosely with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
Stir and continue baking until the rice is tender, about 30 minutes more.
Remove your rice from the oven and stir in the remaining 1 cup milk and the currants; let cool.
Divide the pudding among 6 whiskey glasses and top with Irish cream. Serve it with the cookies!!
