Panna Cotta

A creamy gelatin dessert topped off with berries, you cannot turn this down. Don't let this fool you if you have never had it before it is one of the most amazing dessert you will ever have. It is creamy, just a touch of sweetness and the berries just top it off with this perfect taste. You can make this for yourself, a dinner party with the boss or even on Thanksgiving or Christmas. Enjoy the taste of Italy in your home with simple ingredients that you already have.

1 Cup Whole Milk
1 Packet Unflavored Gelatin 
2 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream
1/2 Cup Sugar
Pinch of Salt
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Cup Sour Cream

Berry Topping:
2 Cups Berries of your choosing ( I did strawberries and raspberries)
4 Tablespoons Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Lemon Juice

Off the heat, place 1 cup of milk and gelatin into a pan and let sit for 5 minutes to let the gelatin soften. Place pan over medium heat and stir until gelatin until it dissolves, do not let mixture boil.

Add in the 2 cups of heavy cream, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1 teaspoon of vanilla and the pinch of salt. Keep stirring until the sugar is dissolved and again do not let mixture boil.

Remove from heat and let sit to cool for 5-10 minutes. 

Place Sour Cream into a separate bowl and whisk until smooth. While whisking slowly pour your cool mixture into the sour cream. Once the mixture is smooth place into 6 glasses or jars. Place into fridge for 6 hours or over night. 

Berry Sauce:
In a small sauce pan combine 1 Cup of the berries, 1/2 Teaspoon Lemon Juice and 4 Tablespoons of Sugar. Bring to a low boil and cook for 5 minutes or until it looks like syrup.
Take off heat and stir in remaining berries, when the sauce reaches room temp, spoon over the cooled Panna Cotta.
