This rice pudding is the absolute best! We thought we wouldn't like it since we find cherries tart! But, it wasn't tart and the cherries plumped up adding a nice texture to the creamy rice pudding. Served warm with half n half over. It was like having the comfort of grandma's home cooking right in my own home. So glad I tried this recipe out even though I was hesitant. My family all agreed it was the best rice pudding they've had!
