GREAT pudding. I took Mike Keys advice and some cut cherries to this. Made recipe as posted. We enjoyed the apricots and the cardamom too. Will repeat. Made for PRMR tag.
I can't believe this isn't a "baked custard with eggs" rice pudding. Very creamy and I love the cardamom! The apricots and pistachios make this a very elegant dessert out of something so basic. Would be good with dried cranberries or cherries, also. The only change I made was to sub half-and-half for the condensed milk, and add 1/2 cup of Splenda. Made for Fall 2008 PAC
