Rice Aebleskivers

My mom used to make these for our family when we were kids. With so many kiddos, they were gone pretty much as soon as they were done. Now I am finding with my brood of 8, I am having the same problem. THEY ARE DELICIOUS!!! Make sure to have an Aebleskiver Pan!!!
4 eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups flour
2 TBL. sugar
1 1/2 TBL. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cups whole milk
2 TBL. melted butter
1 1/2 cups cooked and cooled rice

butter for frying

1. Heat Aebleskiver pan on stove top.

2. In a bowl mix flour, baking powder and salt.

3. Beat egg yolks until think. Beat the yolks, milk, and butter into to the flour mixture. Clean beaters and beat egg whites until they form a stiff peak. Fold egg whites into the batter then fold in the rice.

Place about 1/2 tsp. butter in each Aebleskiver cup. I use a cookie scoop to scoop the batter into the hot Aebleskiver cups. Brown on one side then carefully flip with two spoons) and cook other side, until golden brown, and they are cooked all the way through. Lay on a paper towel to drain off excess grease, and dust with powdered sugar. Serve warm, with blackberry jam.
