Add rice, salt, butter, and 1 cup water to a saucepan. Bring ingredients to boil and immediately reduce heat to medium. Cover pot and allow rice to simmer for 12 minutes. Use a fork to stir rice and then taste it. Add the rest of the water to the rice, cook for another 12 minutes. Add water to the flour in a bowl to make a watery paste.
Beat the flour with a fork to make a smooth solution of flour and water. Slowly add the water and flour mix to the pot while stirring. Now add the half &half. Keep stirring the pot to make sure you have no lumps. Simmer for another 12 minutes and then sweeten and flavor.
