Rich and exotic. Panna cotta is a delicate Italian custard made with gelatin instead of eggs. This one has a silky texture reminiscent of Chinese egg custard tarts. It's flavored with ginger and topped with mango. A perfect Chinese-Italian fusion dessert. Other fruits like apricots, oranges, or berries also work well in place of the mango.

Directions

  1. Spray a paper towel with a little cooking spray and use it to grease 8 (1-cup) custard cups or one 8-cup serving bowl; set aside.
  2. In a saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over water and let sit for 2-3 minutes, without stirring, to soften.
  3. Stir until gelatin dissolves.
  4. Add sugar, milk, evaporated milk, cream, vanilla, and ginger; bring to a simmer over medium, stirring constantly (3-5 minutes).
  5. Remove from heat, then allow to rest for 2 minutes so flavors can blend.
  6. Strain mixture into custard cups.
  7. When cool, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until set (6 hours or overnight).
  8. Unmold, if desired; top each portion with a generous helping of fruit before serving.
