Arroz Doce Cinnamon Rice Pudding Recipe @pinch

A rich, velvety rice pudding that's slightly sweet with a kick of cinnamon and a subtle citrus undertone. This is a Portuguese rice pudding recipe that's different from an American version because of the type of rice used (arborio). Made on the stovetop, Arroz Doce is also creamier. We enjoyed the bright freshness of the lemon peel. Initially, the ratio of liquid to rice had us concerned. In the end, it totally works and creates a very creamy rice pudding. My Portuguese grandmother would make this wonderful rice pudding as a special treat for me and my two brothers. It was always so sweet and creamy... and out of this world!
