I am looking for a rice pudding recipe from Donaldson's Department store
which used to be located in Minneapolis.
It had a layer of custard on top and was served cut in squares.
Thank you so much.
Sorry, I had no success finding this recipe. Wasn't the restaurant in the store called "North Shore Grill?"
I will post this for reader input.
