    Sweet**Fuzion's Note:

    This dessert has the most delicate and creamy flavors of almond, lightly sweetened cherries, and a creamy rice pudding! This recipe holds many special memories for me. My Grandma, who has now been gone for many years, made this since I was a little girl- and it has been a favorite of all of ours-especially my big brother who passed away a few years reminds me of holidays and all the people I love! No Thanksgiving or Christmas Dinner is complete without it! Try makes a beautiful presentation and is just a lovely dish. Note: I did add 25 minutes to the cook and prep time to include cooking 3 cups of white rice. You will also need to chill the rice layer at least 4 hours and I did not add that to the prep or cook time.

    The Snow Layer

    Cherry Topping

    • 1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling
    • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
    • 2 drops red food coloring


    1. 1
      Combine rice, 3 cups milk, sugar, salt and butter.

      Cook over medium heat 20 to 25 minutes, or until thick and creamy, stirring occasionally.
    3. 3
      Soften gelatin in remaining 1/3 cup milk. Stir into rice mixture. Add extracts and remove from heat and let cool.

      Fold whipped cream into rice mixture and gently spoon into a 9x13 smoothing the top with a spatula. Refrigerate for at least 4 hrs or until thoroughly chilled.
    5. 5
      Make the cherry topping by stirring the almond extract and a few drops of food coloring into the cherry pie filling (I usually use wilderness brand) and gently spread the cherry filling over the rice layer-being careful not to stir 'into' the rice layer.
