Homemade Panna Cotta

June 23, 2015


This is day 2 friends of our 4th of July series. I’m extra excited about today because not only am I sharing one of my favorite recipes, but I’m also hosting a giveaway by Emile Henry! We’ll talk more about that at the end of the post. For now I give you one of my families favorite dessert recipes. I have to be honest. I’ve only given this recipe out to a couple of people so you should all feel very special today!

Panna Cotta is an Italian, custard like dessert. It’s not too sweet, which is perfect in my opinion. I for one am not a huge sweet fan. Most cakes, candies, etc. tend to be too sweet for me. Panna Cotta is just perfect!
