I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk instead of fat free evaporated milk, processed 1.5 cups of Splenda to equal 3/4 of a cup of powdered sugar, used 2 t of vanilla bean paste instead of a bean, and 1/2 t of cinnamon instead of 1/4 t of cardamom, which I think tastes like medicine. The panna cotta was excellent and very simple to make! I skipped the blackberry-zinfandel compote because I was trying to keep this low-carb.

Finalist--Desserts. "I developed this light but rich-tasting dessert for a get-together dinner for fitness instructors. I've made this for other entertaining events because I can prepare it ahead of time, which I love." -Camilla Saulsbury, Nacogdoches, TX

- 2 1/2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 1/4 cups evaporated fat-free milk
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise

- To prepare panna cotta, sprinkle gelatin over water in a small bowl; let stand 10 minutes. Bring milk, powdered sugar, and vanilla bean to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Remove pan from heat; remove vanilla bean with a slotted spoon. Scrape seeds from vanilla bean. Stir seeds into milk mixture; discard bean.
- Add gelatin mixture to milk mixture, stirring with a whisk until gelatin dissolves. Add sour cream and cardamom; stir until well combined. Divide mixture evenly among 8 (6-ounce) custard cups. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
- To prepare compote, place 1 cup blackberries, wine, and granulated sugar in a food processor, and process until smooth. Strain the blackberry mixture through a fine sieve into a medium saucepan, and discard solids. Bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat; add remaining 2 cups blackberries. Cool completely.
- Loosen edges of custards with a knife or rubber spatula. Place a dessert plate, upside down, on top of each cup; invert onto plates. Serve with compote; top with mint sprigs.
