"This is a Christmas favorite that allow us to enjoy the wonderful rich flavors and festive colors of this dessert. It is a rice pudding like no other. On Christmas it is a tradition to add a whole almond to the bowl. The one who gets it, wins a prize."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

chopped blanched almonds
1/2 (.25 ounce) envelope
1 (12 ounce) package
frozen raspberries - thawed and drained
We have this on Christmas Eve too, an old family favorite going back to my Grandmother's Aunt. Our recipie is basically the same but doubled - except fot the cream (Grandma mentioned she often halved the reciped though, so would be very similar!) Instead of sherry, we used 1/2 cup boiling water to dissolve the gelatin, and instead of vanilla we use almond extract. We also add 1/2 cup slivered almonds and 1 whole almond (the one who gets it gets the prize - usally a small box of chocolates or a christmas ornament). Instead of raspberries we use a strawberry sauce. One package of frozen sweetened berries, thawed, cooked with 2 Tbsp of cornstarch and 1/2 c water until thickened. I always tried to get the prize as a kid, eating 2 or 3 bowls until I was ready to burst. I still get teased by family every Christmas Eve when the pudding comes out after supper. Thanks for sharing.
Easy to make. Definitely top it with berries, otherwise, it was like eating those plain-o store bought rice pudding. I didn't enjoy it but my daughter thought it was good.
This recipe tasted just the way i remember it, Perfect! My family always made this at christmas time we had it with Glogg (warm wine drink )mmmmm.Instead of putting raspberries on top we put cherry sauce. Either way its fantastic!
My husband is Danish, we have this every Christmas and eat it leading up to Christmas with just slight alterations. We make a large pot of rice plain without almonds, vanilla and cream the day before and eat it for supper with a little butter and sugar cinnamon sprinkled on, the next day we add the cream and almonds and true Danish style top with Cherry sauce. Nom Nom Nom. Niels makes it for my family in Scotland and they LOVE it! Mustn't forget a marzipan pig for the prize when the whole almond has been found!
Add 1/2 tsp cinnamon to the whipped cream and this is easily the most different and delicious rice pudding ever!!!
Great rice pudding. i hate to say this, but it is better than our handed down, family recipe. Best ever....
Be careful not to use too much gelatin. The berries taste great with this, so don't leave out!
