Panna Cotta

We like having dessert as much as the next family, but we generally prefer something simple and not too sweet. This Panna Cotta recipe is just the thing for those occasions. Adjust the sweetener depending on the level of sweetness you prefer. 

Panna Cotta

2 cups heavy cream
2 tablespoons sugar, or honey if you prefer
1 teaspoon of vanilla
2  teaspoons gelatin

1. Heat 1 1/2 cups of the cream and the sugar over low heat until sugar is dissolved and cream is hot, but not boiling. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.

2. While cream heats, sprinkle the gelatin over the remaining cream in a medium-sized bowl and let stand 5 to 10 minutes.

3. Pour the very warm cream and sugar mixture over the gelatin and stir until the gelatin is completely dissolved.

4. Divide the Panna Cotta mixture into lightly oiled custard cups for unmolding into serving dishes, or into goblets or other decorate glasses to serve without unmolding. Chill several hours, or until firm. 

5. If unmolding, run a thin sharp knife around the edge of the cup. Unmold onto serving plate

6. Garnish as desired

Four servings
