    smartdog's Note:

    A great alternative for people who aren't particularly fond of your "basic" rice pudding. Reminiscent of creme brulee, this creamy rice pudding is topped with a maple, brown sugar, and macadamia-nut mixture that gives the dessert a brittle-like finish. As your spoon cracks through the crunchy topping, each bite offers an appealing contrast of delicious textures.

      Hi smartdog, had this rice pudding at my friends house and it was out of this world! She got the recipe from Country Living, January 2007 edition, and made it with arborio rice; it was nice and creamy with the brittle topping creating a wonderful difference in flavors. It was fantastic! We all enjoyed it thoroughly! Was going to post it but you beat me to it, thanks for posting. Just finished making it for a friend who came to visit & he asked for the recipe, he liked it so much! Wonderful! Diane:)
