  • Bring water to boil in large saucepan on medium-high heat. Stir in rice; cover. Simmer on medium-low heat 15 min. or until most the water is absorbed. Add milk, cream cheese, sugar and cinnamon; mix well. Return to simmer; cook, uncovered, 20 min. or until cream cheese is completely melted and pudding is thickened, stirring frequently.
  • Pour into large bowl; cover with plastic wrap, placing plastic wrap directly on surface of pudding. Cool to room temperature.
  • Stir vanilla and 6 Tbsp. nuts into pudding. Refrigerate until chilled.
  • Add COOL WHIP to rice pudding just before serving; stir gently with whisk just until blended. Serve topped with pineapple and remaining nuts.

How to Toast Nuts

Toasting nuts adds crunch and intensifies their flavor. To toast nuts in the oven, spread nuts in single layer in shallow baking pan. Bake at 350°F for 8 to 10 min. or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. To toast nuts on the stovetop, place nuts in ungreased skillet. Cook on medium heat until golden brown, stirring frequently. To toast nuts in the microwave, place up to 1 cup of nuts in a microwaveable shallow dish. Microwave on HIGH until fragrant and crisp, stirring every 30 sec.


Prepare using chopped toasted PLANTERS Pecans.


For best results, use a heavy-bottom saucepan to cook the pudding to minimize the risk of scorching. If you don't have a heavy skillet, be sure to stir the pudding frequently while simmering the pudding as directed in recipe.
