  • 1
    In 2-quart saucepan, heat milk, rice, 1/3 cup sugar and the salt to boiling over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer uncovered 40 to 45 minutes, stirring frequently, until rice is tender and mixture is thickened.
  • 2
    Stir a small amount of the hot rice mixture into eggs, then stir eggs back into mixture in saucepan. Continue cooking over medium heat about 3 minutes, stirring constantly, until heated through. Cool 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 3
    In chilled large serving bowl, beat whipping cream and vanilla with electric mixer on high speed until thickened. Fold in cooled rice mixture. Cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours until well chilled.
  • 4
    In 1-quart saucepan, mix 1/2 cup sugar and the cornstarch. Stir in orange juice and frozen cherries. Heat over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until mixture boils and thickens slightly. Stir in brandy. Serve sauce warm or chilled with pudding.

Expert Tips

  • The rice should just barely bubble as it cooks. The milk may evaporate during cooking, so you may have to stir in a little hot water to keep the sauce-like consistency.
  • Cool the pudding in a jiffy by placing the saucepan in a bowl of ice water. Stir frequently so the pudding cools evenly.
  • Up to 24 hours ahead, make the pudding and spoon it into individual serving dishes; cover and refrigerate. Refrigerate the sauce in a covered container.
