PERFECT panna cotta!!!

sorry, no time to wipe glasses! rushed job for fear of panna cotta melting! and hungry pigs awaits!

Perfect? You better believe it! ^^

In fact, it's better than perfect.. if that's possible!

I made this for big pig's party earlier, but I made them AGAIN to share with the chubbies (that's big brother, mama and chubby pig ^^), fatty hubby and papa pig who missed out on this luscious dessert! It's too delicious not to share with my favorite people ^^!

Perfect panna cotta (recipe from david lebovitz's blog)
~ serves 8
4 cups / 1L cream (I used half and half)
1/2 cup / 100g sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
4 1/2 tsp gelatin powder
6 tbsp / 90ml cold water
fruit puree/compote or honey, to serve (best to use homemade fruit puree ^^)

1. Boil cream (+ milk) and sugar together till sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract.

2. Lightly grease moulds with neutral oil, if planning to unmold later. If serving in cups/moulds, skip this step.

3. Sprinkle gelatin powder over a bowl of cold water. Leave to bloom for 5-10 minutes.

4. Pour warm cream mixture over bloomed gelatin and stir till gelatin completely dissolves.

5. Divide panna cotta into moulds/cups, and chill overnight.

6. Serve panna cotta with some fruit compote or honey. Best served IMMEDIATELY while chilled ^^.

This is seriously the easiest, most luscious and luxurious dessert ever!!! Perfect wobble, perfect texture, perfect sweetness, perfect taste! Easily, definitely a PERFECT 10*!!! ^^

p.s. *my piggies couldn't agree more ^^

We love panna cotta but usually order this dessert at restaurants. When you call it perfect panna cotta, it's really worth trying this out. We may not order it anymore once we know how we can make it at home. I love the glasses - I have to buy something like those too. :)
