  • Whip the cream until stiff. Stir in the cooled rice, dates, and powdered sugar. Sprinkle the gelatin over the surface of the water, then set over a pot of boiling water until dissolved. Stir into rice mixture along with the vanilla.

  • Place bowl into the refrigerator, and chill until the mixture begins to thicken. Once the rice no longer settles to the bottom, rinse a mold to moisten the inside, then pour in the rice mixture. Chill until set, about 3 hours. Unmold and serve when very cold.
