    mersaydees's Note:

    Based on a recipe from Beatrice Ojakangas' cookbook, The Finnish Cookbook. If I said that I love this recipe, it may be my taste buds, heavily influenced by the Finnish-American culture in which I grew up! To me and my visiting brother, this is divine! As an added bonus, my brother researched foods that help one with quality sleep, and this is among them! :) Will my DH eat this -- not on his life! He did taste it though, so he knows what he's missing! NOTE: In its introduction, Beatrice explains, "At Christmastime, a blanched almond is often pressed into this pudding before it is served, and it is said that the person who gets it will have good luck during the following year."

      I made this for our Finnish Christmas celebration. I used basmati rice, and it was pronounced AMAZING by all. Yum. Thank you for sharin.

      I wanted to use our puuro riisi, but it was too old, so I ended up using arborio rice, which I think is a comparable substitute. I made this lower in fat by using only a tablespoon of the butter. DH wanted to try half without the almonds/cinnamon, but it really is much better with them (I added them in the last 15 minutes of baking so they wouldn't sink). I tried seconds with a tiny bit of almond extract stirred in, and that was really yummy.

      I substituted jasmine rice and and whole cinnamon stick for ground. This was made two weeks ago and I forgot to review it so all from memory. I preferred the rice pudding chilled. It firmed up
      better too after chilling. Made for Best of 2011.
