This recipe uses Arborio rice, the same rice used for risotto. This results in an ultra-creamy texture, thanks to the super-starchy kernels.
1 cup Arborio rice
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
5 cups whole milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 vanilla pod, split and caviar scraped out
2 cinnamon sticks
2/3 cups heavy cream
In a sauce pot on medium heat, heat 5 cups of milk with 1/4 teaspoon

of salt, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1 split vanilla pod, and

2 cinnamon sticks until it's just starting to bubble around

the edges, but not boiling.

Meanwhile, in a large pot,

melt 1 tablespoon of butter on medium heat, then add in the

arborio rice. Toast the rice in the butter for 1 minute,

to open up the kernels.

Lower the heat to medium-low, then

cook for 35-40 minutes, until the rice is tender and the

texture of the mixture has become rich and creamy. A good

way to tell that the rice pudding is done is dipping a back

of a wooden spoon into the mixture, and using your finger

to draw a line down the length of the spoon. If it's thick

and the line stays separated, that means there's a ton of starch

in the mixture, and it should be super creamy.


the rice pudding is done, remove the vanilla pod and cinnamon

sticks, then pour it into a glass bowl and cover with

plastic wrap. Make sure to press the plastic wrap onto the

rice pudding, to keep it from forming a skin.


the rice pudding for at least 4 hours.

Once the pudding

is cooled, stir in the heavy cream, and serve.
