At the Inn, we used to serve this rice pudding as a first course at breakfast. I find it to be a lot more interesting than porridge or oatmeal. The short-grain Arborio rice gives this dish a more unique texture than a standard rice pudding and I like it a little al dente. Play around with different dried fruits (figs, dates, papaya, etc..) and you can also diced fresh fruit. The combination of spices in the Apple Pie Spice Mix gives the pudding a nicely balanced spicy background.
