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.

How to Make Cinco de Mayo "Horchata Pie" Cinnamon Rice Pudding

Step-by-Step

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

    Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Using a blender, blend cottage cheese with some of the half & half and/or cream. Once it is pureed to a smooth consistency, add the rest of the half & half/cream, vanilla, cardamom, rose water, & 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. Blend well.
  3. Pour mixture into a mixing bowl, and add sugar and eggs. Use a beater to mix thoroughly. (Or you may use your blender if it is large enough.) Stir in rice & mix well.

    Pour into a deep dish pie plate. Sprinkle with cinnamon, then generously with cinnamon sugar.
  4. Bake at 350 F for one hour. The center may be very slightly jiggly, but it will set up when cooled.

    Serve chilled or room temperature.
