The word Panna Cotta literally means cooked cream and it has its origins in the beautiful country of Italy. This dessert might seem too fancy to the ears but it’s hardly a hassle for your hands and not only this, it is known for its simplicity! Even I thought that desserts with hi-fi names require a lot of work but
when I got down to making this one, I was delighted with how it turned out!
Vanilla Panna Cotta makes the perfect dessert for many, many reasons: it’s super easy to put together, you hardly get negative feedbacks with this one, and it needs to set in the refrigerator so you can just whip it up, put it in there, and forget it! Since it’s super easy to prepare a large batch, it also comes
handy when you have to prepare desserts for a party.
