Springform pans, like the one used in this recipe, make cooking easy! They have removable sides, so cakes can be easily flipped onto serving platters.


Slivered almonds

¾ oz, about 3 Tbsp, toasted until golden

1% low-fat milk

4 cup(s), (1%)

Uncooked arborio rice

1 cup(s), or other short grain rice

Ground cinnamon

tsp(s), or 1 cinnamon stick

Table salt

½ tsp(s)

Almond extract

½ tsp(s)


½ cup(s)


  1. Coat bottom and sides of a 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray. Spread toasted almonds in a single layer in bottom of pan. Set aside.
  2. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat milk to boiling. Stir in rice, cinnamon and salt. Reduce to simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes. Add sugar and almond extract and cook, stirring often, 12 to 15 minutes longer or until rice is cooked through and mixture is thick.
  3. Gently spoon rice mixture into pan and spread evenly, keeping almonds intact on bottom. Cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate just until firm, about 40 minutes.
  4. To serve, remove sides of pan and invert tart onto serving plate. Lift off bottom of pan (almonds will now be imbedded on top of tart). Garnish with fresh cherries and serve.
