Danish Rice Pudding Recipe

1 cup rice, uncooked
4 cups milk
1 1/2 to 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup water
8 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups whipped cream
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup chopped almonds (optional)

Cook rice in milk; bring to a boil and simmer for about 18 minutes.

Soften gelatin in 1/2 cup of water. Add softened gelatin, sugar and salt to the cooked rice. Cool.

Add whipped cream and vanilla. Put into a bowl and chill until fairly firm. Serve with a cold fruit sauce, or use a Danish dessert pudding mix for an excellent sauce. Sprinkle with nuts if desired.
