Description Edit

Similar to the crème brûlée or the dessert-based pudding, this cream-based dessert is made and with authentic rice, fruit, cream cheese, and heavy cream, and keeps a divine aroma with the strawberries. Toasted almonds occasionally work for this for garnishing, too.

Ingredients Edit

  • 3 cups cooked rice, white only
  • 3 cups milk, regular or low-fat/skimmed only
  • 1 ⅓ cup sugar, brown only, reserving one cup for mixing
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 3-ounce packages cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy cream, whipped
  • 1 16-ounce package frozen sweetened whole strawberries, thawed, drained and sliced in half

Directions Edit

  1. Combine rice, milk, sugar, and salt in a saucepan.
  2. Cook over medium heat until thick and creamy, about 30 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
  3. Add cream cheese, broken in small pieces, and vanilla.
  4. Stir until cheese is dissolved; chill. Fold in or mix up whipped cream. Chill thoroughly.
  5. Arrange strawberries over the bottom of a 12x8x2-inch baking dish.
  6. Spoon pudding over berries. Sprinkle with the remaining brown sugar.
  7. Place under a broiler for 1 to 2 minutes or just until sugar melts, or use 8 individual ovenproof dishes. Serve immediately.
