Vanilla Panna Cotta
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Servings: Makes 6-8 ramekins
|1 sachet||unflavored gelatin|
|1 cup||NESTLÉ Fresh Milk|
|2 cans||NESTLÉ Thick Cream 300g|
|2 tsp||vanilla extract|
|candied walnuts or fruits of your choice|
- In a small bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over ½ cup milk; let stand until the gelatin is softened, about 5 minutes.
- In a large saucepan, combine NESTLÉ Thick Cream and sugar. Add vanilla extract. Bring cream just to a simmer (do not let it boil), whisking occasionally until sugar has completely dissolved; remove from heat. Add the softened gelatin mixture and whisk to completely dissolve the gelatin.
- Strain hot cream mixture into a large glass measuring cup with a pouring spout; pour into ramekins or custard cups.
NOTE: Don't skip the straining step as it removes any bits of undissolved gelatin and ensures a nice smooth dessert. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight
- To unmold and serve, carefully dip bottom of each ramekin in a pan of hot water briefly. Run a thin knife around edge of each ramekin to loosen it from the inside of the bowl. Wipe the outside of the mold dry and place on individual chilled serving plate (topside down). Invert the custard onto the plate and carefully lift off ramekin (shake gently to release). Garnish with candied walnuts, berries, or fruit of your choice.
