Arroz Con Leche (Sweet Rice)

This is so good and creamy! 

1 cup white rice
2 cups water
2 tablespoons butter
2 cups milk
1 tablespoon flour
1 egg
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup heavy cream or half & half
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

Put rice, water, and butter in a pot and bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. While the rice is cooking, combine milk, flour, egg, sugar, vanilla in a bowl and whisk together. When rice is done cooking, uncover and add the milk mixture to the pot and stir to combine. Bring heat up to low and cook for 15 minutes, stirring every couple minutes. Add raisin and cinnamon if you wish. Let cool slightly, add cream and enjoy!
