Hi you all,  For Christmas desserts, here in Scandinavian, around Christmas time we make rice cream and often serve it on Christmas Eve after dinner, at least at my house! It´s so delicious!

Most people in Norway make it with just whipped cream, a few spoons of sugar and cold ready made sweet rice pudding! I like to add seeds from  1 vanilla bean and mascarpone and a bit more sugar, together with raspberry sauce and sugar-coated almonds, it is amazing, in taste and the perfect dessert for Christmas!

So if you want to try a typical Scandinavia dessert for Christmas, try this one, it´s heavenly!
