Danish Christmas rice pudding with warm cherry sauce or Risalamande is traditionally served on Christmas Eve. Whoever finds the hidden almond receives a small gift. I like this recipe because it is cooked entirely on the stove top and cooks in one hour, rather than in the oven for two hours or more. Can be made in advance and refrigerated until serving time. The Danes often buy a store bought cherry sauce, but I've included a recipe for home-made. :) Adapted from an online source.
