In saucepan, combine rice and 1 1/2 cups water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook until water has absorbed and rice is tender, about 20 minutes. 

Remove pan from heat. Add milk, 1/2 cup of the maple syrup, the vanilla and cinnamon, and whisk for 1 minute, scraping bottom and side of pan. Return pan to medium heat and cook, whisking often, until pudding is creamy, 6 to 8 minutes. 

Divide pudding among four 3/4-cup glasses. Let cool to room tem­perature, then refrigerate until pudding is chilled, at least 2 hours. (Make-ahead: Can be refrigerated for up to 5 days.) 

Drizzle puddings with remaining maple syrup. Sprinkle with maple sugar chips, if using.

Test kitchen tips

You can use leftover rice for this recipe. Simply use 2 cups cooked rice and start this recipe in paragraph two (the step where you add milk).

To make this recipe a success, be sure not to use parboiled rice. As this precooked rice contains less starch, it does not absorb liquid as much as other varieties and does not become starchy when cooked.
