Nothing makes someone smile more genuinely than giving them a homemade sweet treat. Around here, my kids and husband have become so accustomed to my cooking and baking that I already know the way to their hearts are with desserts like this Stovetop Lemon Rice Pudding Recipe which I made using ingredients like Country Crock.
Speaking of Country Crock, now- June, 19th you can score $2 off Country Crock at select Costco locations (like the Stoughton, MA location)! These instant redeemable coupons are available in the member coupon book and require NO clipping! The discount comes off right at the register after you scan your membership card! That means you can score 5 lbs of Country Crock for under $3!! What a deal!
We recently fell in love with Costco because where else can you find 5 lb ketchup for under $4 and 10 lbs of pickles for like $3? Sign me up!!
Country Crock is one of those brands that I grew up with. My Vavo (Portuguese grandmother) always purchased this product and used it in all her baking and cooking. She would wash out the containers and use them for storage. I giggle to myself thinking how she would upcycle this HUGE 5 lb container from Costco! If I had to guess, I would say she’d use it for buttons because she LOVED to sew and has a room full of containers with beautiful buttons and threads.
When I think of my Vavo, I think back to that yummy Portuguese rice pudding she’d make. I feel like she had it on her table every week to welcome anyone who’d stop by for a cup of coffee or tea. It reminded me how much everyone loved it and the smiles it would produce. That is why I decided to make a huge batch for my family to spread some cheer. While this is not the Portuguese Sweet Rice recipe, this is more of the American classic stovetop version with a lemony twist!
These stovetop lemon rice pudding cups are so perfect to pass out to people. I gave my Mother & Father in law a cup to enjoy, as well as my husband and children. I even think these would make the PERFECT bake sale treat because you can easily jazz up the rice pudding cups with little cupcake liners, sunny yellow ribbon, and even a flower.
Don’t they look so cute?
My kids seemed to think so even though they were more concerned with digging into the warm, custard-like rice pudding!
I really think the addition of Country Crock made this recipe a WINNER with a fewer calories! I love that Country Crock is the perfect butter substitute and really is so versatile! Their website even has many recipes to help inspire you to make the swap!
