Rice Snowballs

Boil a pint of rice in 2 quarts of water with a teaspoonful of salt until soft; then put it in small cups, having them quite full. When perfectly cold turn them into a dish. Take the yolks of 3 eggs, 1 pint of milk, 1 teaspoonful corn starch; flavor with lemon, and cook as you do soft custard. Turn over the rice half an hour previous to eating. This is a nice dessert in hot weather. Sweet meats are a good accompaniment.
