Simple Rice Pudding

3/4 cup uncooked white rice
2 cups milk, divided
1/3 cup white sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
2/3 cup raisins (optional -- I did not include)
1 Tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a medium saucepan, bring 1 1/2 cups water to a boil. Add rice and stir. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.

In another saucepan, combine 1 1/2 cups cooked rice, 1 1/2 cups milk, sugar, and salt. Cook over medium heat until thick and creamy, about 15-20 minutes. Stir in remaining 1/2 cup milk, beaten egg, and raisins (if using). Cook 2 minutes more, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and stir in butter and vanilla.

Serve warm.
