5 More Perfect Panna Cotta

August 25, 2011

A classic homemade Italian dessert! Literally "cooked cream" panna cotta is incredibly simple to make and even easier to enjoy. A cross between crème brûlée (without the brûlée) and flan, this dessert has essentially four ingredients: cream, sugar, gelatin and flavoring -- quickly cooked (seriously, 5 minutes!) and then chilled until solid. Here are 5 fabulously simple panna cotta recipes to enjoy this summer.
