1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus additional for sprinkling
3/4 cup chopped Fisher® Chef’s Naturals Walnuts
Cook rice, 3 cups water and salt in an uncovered medium saucepan for 15 minutes or until rice is nearly dry, stirring occasionally. Stir in half and half, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.
Combine eggs, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon in a small bowl. Stir 1 cup of cooked rice into egg mixture, ¼ cup at a time. Pour egg mixture into rice in pot. Stir for 1 minute or until temperature of rice mixture reaches at least 165°F on a thermometer. Return to low heat, if necessary to reach desired temperature. Transfer to a servicing dish and stir in walnuts. Cover with buttered parchment or waxed paper. Refrigerate until cold. Sprinkle with additional cinnamon before serving.
