Wow Diana! My girlfriends & I went for a fancy dinner a few weeks ago & finished it off with panna cotta. We've been craving it ever since. I got your recipe, went shopping & followed it exactly. Before ladeling it into the dishes, I spread a caramel dip on the bottom (as the restaurant had done). It makes for a pleasant surprise on the bottom;) It turned out EXCELLENT! Thank you.

Made this this morning, and, wow. Admittedly, I didn't follow the recipe exactly (forgot to buy vanilla, subbed almond extract instead) but it's still delicious. Next time I'll have vanilla and do it right lol.
