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.
Thanks! I too, had it at a restaurant and had been craving it eversince. It was easy and tasted great. Cured the craving.
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.
This makes an excellent panna cotta. I used skim milk instead of half & half and found the texture to be fine. A bit sweet, so I might cut back on the sugar next time. The perfect dessert for a hot July night!
Quick, easy, & delicious! We've never had Panna Cotta before so browsing zaar we chose this one. I used all half-and-half and 1 1/2 tsp vanilla. Next time, I will use just 1 tsp vanilla and less sugar (1/4 cup perhaps) as it is very sweet. We had ours plain but felt it definitely needs something to compliment it (reviews of caramel sauce or jam sound great). A keeper recipe, thanks so much for sharing. :)
I want to make this but am a little confused about Step 3 where it says Add the heavy cream, 1t. It says it uses 2 cups of heavy cream. What does the 1t. mean?
Oh my goodness, this was wonderful. I have never had panna cotta before but i saw it being made on tv and thought it looked interesting so i thought i'd give it a try. I halved the amount of sugar, and replaced some of the heavy cream with milk as suggested by another reviewer. I also used a jarred Dulche de Leche sauce on the bottom of some of the cups and strawberry/rhubarb jam on the bottom of others. This was so easy to make and the recipe seems VERY versatile. Next time i am going to flavour with Creme de Cacao and Creme de menthe for a grasshopper panna cotta with a kick. Thanx for sharing this recipe, it's a keeper.
This recipe was so easy. I made is for Thanksgiving dessert instead of the traditional boring pumpkin pie and it was great. It was quite rich though- I might subract some of the heavy cream and add regular milk and take out maybe 1 tbsp of sugar next time I make it. It sure was good though!
Loved this recipe! Needed a quick, easy, but tasty dessert for a casual, italian dinner with friends. I simply did not make enough, everyone raved about this dish! Let set then served in decorative stemmed glass with chilled spoons. I did take the suggestion of spreading caramel on the bottom before ladling cream mixture. I topped with mixture of fresh berries. This recipe is well worth a try! Thanks DiB.
We were in Tuscany this summer and I had Panna Cotta for the 1st time. I was determined to learn to make it when I came home. Your recipe is IT!!!, and so easy to make. I've been serving it with a garnish combination of raspberries and blackberries. Many thanks!
