Having lived in Copenhagen since 1994 I can testify that 90% of Danes will have a variation of this dish for dessert on Christmas Eve, which is the big day here. Carl Andersen was the founder and longtime owner of Chatam Restaurant in Hollywood, a favorite of the stars of the past. The recipe is from his daughter's "Star Food" cookbook. PLEASE REMEMBER: You can not use "converted" rice to prepare this dish. You also can not hurry up the cooking times-it says two hours in the oven, and that is what you must do. I have modified the dish by leaving out 1 cup blanched, slivered, almonds, which I have never seen used in the dish here. One whole blanched almond may be added just before serving-the person who finds this in their serving traditionally receives a "mandelgave", some small gift, from the host/hostess. NOTE: If there is any excess milk floating around after the cooked rice has cooled, pour it off and proceed with the recipe.
