    Lemon-Cinnamon Rice Pudding (Gluten-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    Celiac.com 02/18/2014 - Rice pudding is one of my perennial favorite desserts. This version fuses arborio rice with citrus, cinnamon and a dash of creamy mascarpone cheese to achieve a kind of rice-pudding nirvana.

    • 1 strip lemon peel, plus ½ teaspoon grated zest
    • ⅓ cup golden raisins or dried currants
    • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    • Kosher salt
    • 1 cup Arborio rice
    • 4 cups organic whole milk
    • ¾ cup granulated sugar
    • 2 real cinnamon sticks
    • 2 teaspoons real vanilla extract
    • ½ cup Mascarpone cheese
    • 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
    • Ground cinnamon, for sprinkling
    • ½ cup dark rum

    Directions:
    Soak raisins in dark rum overnight, or for at least and hour or two.

    In a saucepan, combine the lemon peel, 2 cups water, the butter and a pinch of salt.

    Bring to a boil. Add the rice and return to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and cook, shaking the pan occasionally, until the liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes.

    In a separate saucepan, bring the milk, granulated sugar, cinnamon sticks and vanilla to a low boil.

    Add the rice and simmer over medium-low heat, stirring, until the liquid is mostly absorbed, about 15 minutes. Stir in the grated orange zest and ¼ cup Mascarpone.

    Transfer the rice pudding to a large bowl and let cool, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until cold and set, about 2 hours.

    Beat the remaining ¼ cup Mascarpone and the confectioners' sugar in a bowl.

    Remove cinnamon sticks and lemon peel. 

    Spoon into bowls. Top each with a dash of cinnamon, a small pile of rum-soaked raisins, and a dallop of Mascarpone. Serve.
