Vanilla Dessert Wars

I've always wanted to try rice pudding and when I found out that the theme for April's Dessert Wars was vanilla, I knew it was time to make it. As a partcipant in the contest I received vanilla beans from Beanilla to use in my recipe and I had to use vanilla in 3 different components of the dessert. WOW, this was hard for me but I was up for the challenge. My dessert consisted of Vanilla Bean Rice Pudding, topped with Vanilla Bean Whipped Cream and then a Vanilla Bean Orange Sugar Cookie. Turns out...I LOVE rice pudding and the vanilla flavor is delicious.
I'll be posting the recipes for each component in a separate post next week when I finally have internet access at home. I miss cable and internet but our new place has Fios so I'm excited to have it installed.

The winner of April's competition will receive the following prize package:

Beanilla Sampler Pack of Vanilla Beans

Lenox Personalized Musical Cupcake

1,000 ideas for Decorating Cupcakes, Cookies & Cakes

Organic Valley $50 Gift Certificate
