In looking back over my cooking photos and deciding what recipe to do next, I realized that I should probably create a blog called, “Pam Makes Panna Cotta” – because it is my new most favorite thing ever. The only thing that makes me angry is that I just recently discovered it. If you are like me, and have wasted years of your life without making panna cotta, run – don’t walk – to your kitchen and make some.
Do you remember when I made Peach and Buttermilk Panna Cotta from Bakeless Sweets: Pudding, Panna Cotta, Fluff, Icebox Cake, and More No-Bake Desserts ? I absolutely loved the rich creaminess of the buttermilk panna cotta, sweet, but with a slight tang from the buttermilk. I thought..well if it’s this good with peaches what about strawberries.
Oh my word. This was heaven in a jar! The original recipe called for 2 large peaches (12 ounces), so I took about the equivalent of strawberries, diced them and let them macerate for about an hour with a couple of tablespoons of sugar. Then just added it to jars before pouring the panna cotta over it.
This was strawberries and cream goodness in a cute little jar. And, did I mention that you can make this and serve it for dessert a mere two hours later?! Yep. I made this after school, and we ate it that night, that’s about as close to instant gratification as you can get!! Follow the link above to get to the original recipe and then like me, make it over and over again, subbing fruits – or even skipping the fruit, it’s that’ good!
