1. Add all ingredients to the cooking pot of the Cuisinart ® Rice and Grain Multicooker. Select the Risotto function and press Start/Stop.

2. When there are 15 minutes remaining, a tone will sound. At this point, open the lid, stir mixture and determine if the pudding is done to your liking. If the consistency is desirable, press Start/Stop. If, at this point, the pudding is too stiff or dry, stir in additional milk or water, close lid, and allow to cook for the remainder of the function time.

3. Once the audible tone has sounded to indicate the end of cooking, open the lid, remove the cinnamon sticks and stir well. This pudding can be served warm or chilled.
