Southern Rice Pudding

1 - cup cooked medium or long grain rice
3/4 - cup sugar
1/3 - cup flour
1/4 - tsp salt
2 - cups whole milk (lowfat is fine)
3 - egg yolks (beaten)
3/4 - 1 tsp vanilla extract

Place sugar, flour, salt, and milk in a medium size saucepan. Stir on medium low heat until mixture begins to boil. Let boil while stirring constantly for 2-3 minutes. remove from heat and place 1/2 cup of hot mixture into egg yolks and mix (tempering the eggs). Pour egg yolks and rice into hot pudding mixture and place back on the stove. Continue to cook for 2-3 minutes. Stir constantly so pudding does not lump and stick to the bottom of the pan. Remove from heat and add the vanilla extract, blend well. Chill before serving. Add your favorite garnish Fruit, whipped topping or a little cinnamon is always nice. I like my rice pudding warm so as soon as I remove from the heat and add vanilla. I place my rice pudding into a serving bowl and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
