Source: Adapted from David Lebovitz

Taste: 5 out of 5
Difficulty: 1 out of 5

Ingredients
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 1 cup milk
- ¼ cup white sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 ¼ tsp gelatin
- 3 tbsp cold water
Total 4 servings in ½ cup ramekins or 16 small shot glasses

Instructions
1. In a medium heat proof bowl sprinkle gelatin over cold water and let stand for 5-10 minutes.
2. In a small saucepan combine the cream, the milk and the sugar. Heat until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat and add vanilla.
3. Pour the very warm cream-milk mixture over the gelatin and mix well so that there are no lumps.
4. Pour the panna cotta into individual serving containers (ramekins or glasses) and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

Afterthoughts

- This panna cotta is not too sweet, so it is perfect when combined with a sweet and tart jam or jelly. If you plan to eat this panna cotta plain, I would add a little more sugar and maybe liquor or syrup for flavoring.
- When making the panna cotta in glasses, it can be nice to refrigerate the glasses placed on a slanted surface or rested at an angle in an egg tray, to create the “tilted” effect.

Beautiful presentation! I wish that I had made this for my mother! Guess I'll have to settle for making it just for me! Happy to be a new follower!

I have to say after looking at your blog there is very little about you that demonstrates being a "cooking rookie"! Your recipes are beautiful and so well executed! You're very well accomplished in the kitchen and behind the camera! Thank you for visiting my site yesterday! Biren is a dear for featuring my blog!

So pretty, don't know how I missed this!! Very simple but dramatic - have to try the slanted mould trick next time I make a moulded dessert.
