Arborio Rice Pudding

Arborio Rice Pudding


  • 3/4 C Roland® Arborio Rice
  • 1-1/2 C Water
  • 1/4 tsp Roland® Fine Sea Salt
  • 4 C Half and Half
  • 3/4 C Sugar
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Bean Paste or Seeds from 1 Vanilla Bean
  • 1 C Roland® Amarena Cherries, Sliced in Half
  • 1 Tbsp Butter


  1. Combine rice, water and salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and then turn down heat & simmer with lid on for about 10 minutes or until the water is absorbed.
  2. Stir in 3-1/2 cups of half and half and sugar. Simmer uncovered for about 30 minutes or until rice is soft and fully cooked. Stir often so the bottom does not burn.
  3. Whisk the egg, vanilla bean paste, and remaining 1/2 cup of half and half in a bowl and slowly pour into the rice mixture while stirring constantly. Cook for another minute and remove from the heat.
  4. Add in the Amarena Cherries and butter. Stir so that they are combined well. Cool and stir well before serving. The rice pudding will thicken once it is cooled.
