In the creamy dreamy world of luscious desserts the panna cotta reigns as a melt in your mouth treat. The trick is the right texture and mastering the simple technique of working with gelatin. Too little and it bloops. Too much and it's a rubber ball.
Yield: 6 servings
1 1/2 tsp powdered gelatin, carefully measured
2 Tbs cool water
2 cups whipping cream
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups Stonyfield Farm organic whole milk vanilla yogurt
In a small dish or ramekin measure the water and sprinkle the gelatin over the water in an even layer so it will be softened and bloom. In a sauce pan, heat the cream with the sugar and salt. Remove from heat and whisk in the yogurt.
To dissolve gelatin, place ramekin with gelatin in a small pan of hot water. Immediately whisk liquefied gelatin into the yogurt mixture. Whisk well to fully blend together.
Pour into 6 molds, ramekins or plastic cups and chill. You can unmold to serve or just let folks spoon it out of the cups. Nice with fresh berries, too.
