“This is the recipe that was submitted to Gourmet Magazine by the FDNY Company 18. Very simply and oh so very good! I like to add raisins to my rice pudding. If you do too, add the raisins into the milk and rice mixture before simmering so they will be nice and plump :)”

  5. Pour pudding into a 13- by 9-inch glass or ceramic baking dish (3-quart capacity) and sprinkle with cinnamon.
