    Christmas Rice

    Not just for rice pudding fans, this wonderful dessert is flavoured with vanilla and brandy and enriched with cream before being layered in a dish with red fruit and slivered almonds. Red fruit is traditional in Scandinavia but apricot or apple compote are just as delicious.
