Hi again!! Want to join me for dessert?!!

Panna Cotta is quite possibly one of my favorite desserts to make because it's so simple and yet elegant all at the same time! It's a very easy and quick recipe, my Grandma would say it needs a pinch of salt, but I've never added it (shhh... don't tell on me!) and I still think it tastes perfect every time!

Panna Cotta
• 3 T. milk (I use whatever I have in the fridge.)
• 1 (.25 ounce) envelope unflavored gelatin
• 2 1/2 cups heavy cream
• 1/2 cup white sugar
• 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
optional* raspberries, blueberries and almonds

1.Pour milk into a small bowl, and stir in the gelatin powder. Let stand for 3 to 5 minutes to soften the gelatin.
2. In a saucepan, stir together the heavy cream and sugar, add the milk/gelatin mixture and set over medium heat. Stir until gelatin has completely dissolved. Bring to a full boil, stirring consistently, and cook for about 1 minute.
3. Remove from heat, stir in the vanilla and pour into six individual ramekin dishes.
4.Cool the ramekins uncovered at room temperature. When cool, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, but preferably overnight before serving.
5. Spoon the berries and almonds on top of the panna cotta and serve.

It's the most wonderful dessert! Hope you enjoy the recipe!
