Panna Cotta

Panna cotta 

(Makes 16- 6 oz. serving)

Panna Cotta is an Italian means “Cooked Cream.”  It is a luscious silky Italian custard like dessert that is a favorite for my family. My recipe has hints of honey and vanilla and I top it with fresh berries to serve. This dessert is super simple to make and can be made a few days in advance and kept in the refrigerator. So, it is a great party dessert!


2 Cups Whole Milk

2 Tbsp. Unflavored Powdered Gelatin

6 cups Heavy Cream

2 Cups Honey

6 Tbsp. Sugar

6 Tbsp. Pure Vanilla Extract

2 Pinches of Salt

Assorted Berries for Garnish

Heat Safe Glasses- 6 oz. each 


Place the milk in a sauce pan and sprinkle with gelatin. Let it stand for 5 minutes until the gelatin is softened. On medium heat, simmer the milk mixture for about 5 minutes. Do not let it boil. Stir in the heavy cream, honey, sugar, vanilla and salt.  Put on medium heat until the sugar dissolves.  About 6 minutes.  Keep stirring. Take off the heat and let the mixture cool.  Using a ladle evenly distribute to heat safe glasses.  Cover with plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator for about 5 hours until firm.  Serve topped with berries and a drizzle of honey.
