Apple Butter Rice Pudding
Rice pudding gets a major upgrade with fragrant allspice and sweet apple butter. Embrace fall and the bounty of apples and make a homemade apple butter, or pick some up at the store. Even better, grab some at your local farmers market. Any fruit jam works splendidly well here, too, if you're more of a blueberry or raspberry person. If you have some vanilla beans in your kitchen, just slice lengthwise with a paring knife, scrape out the seeds, and drop both the seeds and the bean in while the rice cooks (just be sure to remove the pod before spooning into jars). Top with coconut chips right before transporting or serving for maximum crunchiness.
