Baked Cardamom Rice Pudding

1/2 cup Calrose rice
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 tablespoon butter
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
Dash cinnamon
2 tablespoons slivered almonds (optional)

Makes four servings

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

Put the rice, milk, butter, sugar, and cardamom in a medium pot with an oven-proof lid. Stir well, put on the lid and cook in the oven for 1 hour. After an hour, remove from the oven, stir, and continue to bake an additional 30 to 45 minutes until the pudding is creamy and moist, and the rice is tender. Don’t overcook and let it dry out.

Let it cool for 10 minutes with the lid on. Spoon into serving bowls, sprinkle a little cinnamon on top and serve.
