Italian (Arborio) Rice Pudding

Nick Van Laar

"A very rich, smooth, and creamy rice pudding with a hint of lemon. Pudding will thicken as it cools, but it's best served at room temperature or slightly warm."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Bring water to a boil in a large saucepan; add rice, butter, and salt. Place a cover on the saucepan, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook rice at a simmer until the rice is tender and the moisture is mostly absorbed, about 20 minutes.
  2. Stir half-and-half and sugar into the rice until the sugar dissolves; add cinnamon stick and lemon peel. Bring the mixture to a boil and remove from heat.
  3. Place a large stainless steel bowl atop a pot of simmering water. Pour the rice mixture into the top of the double boiler and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 45 minutes.
  4. Pour rice pudding into a serving dish. Remove and discard cinnamon stick and lemon peel from pudding; let cool slightly before garnishing with cinnamon to serve.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • I try to get the double boiler simmering before the mixture is ready to be added.
  • For a more subtle cinnamon flavor, add the cinnamon stick after putting the mixture into the double boiler.
  • Other risotto type rices will work, but Arborio and Carnaroli are the best.
