Cooking Method

Rice Pudding

  • Put the rice, sugar and milk into a medium sized saucepan.
  • Split the ½ vanilla pod horizontally and scrape the seeds into the pan.
  • Stir and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat.
  • Half cover with a lid, cook gently for 40-45 mins over a very low heat, stirring occasionally until the rice has swollen and is very tender.
  • Leave to cool down.
  • Gently fold in 100g of Creamy Sheese and spoon into 4 ramequins.


Caramelised Dried Fruits

  • Mix together all the ingredients in a pan and place over moderate heat.
  • Stir constantly, allowing the mix to caramelise and making sure all the nuts are well coated.
  • Pour the nuts onto a greaseproof paper.
  • When cooled down, crush the nuts in a food processor, just a few pulses.


Sesame Shortbread

  • Place the margarine and sugar into a food processor, mix with the paddle until smooth.
  • Tip in both the flours and salt. Mix until thoroughly mixed and a uniform consistency.
  • Roll out about 8mm thick between 2 sheets of baking parchment.
  • Cut long shard shapes ( “oriental sticks”) with a knife.
  • Lift the bottom paper onto a baking tray.Sprinkle with sesame seeds and bake for 10-12 min 170 degrees (gas 5-6). Once the shortbread is cool, sprinkle the caramelised dried fruits over the Creamy Sheese Rice Pudding and serve with the sesame shortbread on the side. Enjoy!
