Prep: 20 minutes; Cook: 7 minutes; other: 24 hoursOur version of panna cotta is sweet, creamy, and delicious--with only a fraction of the fat. It's quicker than the traditional recipe because you skip the molding process and chill it in your prettiest glass stemware instead. You can make the panna cotta a day in advance and keep it in the refrigerator, which makes it ideal for dinner parties.
