Panecotta OR Panna Cotta

  • 2

"Bosko" posted a question re: panecotta. He was asked to post the question on the "home boards." I'm not sure if I'm in those or not, but I too, am looking for a similar recipe. It is made with milk, vanilla bean, cream, gelatin, butterscotch candies-melted in the milk and all placed in chocolate cups in a muffin pan. The dessert is Italian. I'm not sure how to spell it but would LOVE the recipe for this creamy, rich, delicious dessert.

Many thanks!

  1. I'm afraid I don't have the recipe you're after (though butterscotch candies sound intriguing!), but I CAN tell you it is spelt PANNA COTTA. The direct translation from Italian means cooked cream. Which is really what it is!

    1. http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo... That's a recipe for buttermilk panna cotta which is quite popular as the tanginess of the buttermilk adds a different dimension to the dessert and also keeps it from being too heavy. You could probably experiment by switching half the sugar with the candies or something. As it is a gelatin, the only problem you have with changing things around is the liquid to gelatin ration; everything else is pretty forgiving.
