Christmas Rice Cream with Raspberries


You cannot tell a Norwegian that his classic Christmas doesn’t include a dessert of rice porridge, with whipped cream, vanilla, sugar, and delicious raspberries. I’ve put together this recipe so you guys can do the classic round of who’s the big winner of the family Christmas dinner. Make sure to put one white almond (remove the brown skin). Whoever is the lucky one to get the almond should be given a marzipan pig as a prize. Make sure to suspect everyone around the table for having the almond. And most of all, DO NOT share the information that you have it until everyone has finished their portion. It’s not just a dessert or a game of who’s the best at hiding the almond. It’s a tradition for almost every Norwegian!
