Cinco de Mayo "Horchata Pie" Cinnamon Rice Pudding

Slight variations from Easter Rice Pie that make it taste just like the best Horchata (my favorite Mexican cinnamon rice drink.)
Perfect light tasting, festive dessert to compliment a Mexican Cinco de Mayo dinner. :)

The jasmine rice, cardamom & rosewater set an unnoticeable, but aromatic stage for the cinnamon in this dessert. The sugar caramelizes a bit on the edges for extra flavor depth. Everyone who has tried this LOVES it.

This works in cupcake, or mini cupcake tins with wrappers, if you reduce the baking time.

  • 1Cook jasmine rice (with optional drizzle of rosewater & 3 cardamom pods.)
