Can you believe it’s already March?! And yet another Daring Baker’s Challenge has come and gone. I look forward to the end of each month so I can do the challenge. When I found out February’s challenge was to make Panna Cotta, I was SO excited! I couldn’t wait! And ironically, I left it until the last minute to do it.
The February 2011 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Mallory from A Sofa in the Kitchen. She chose to challenge everyone to make Panna Cotta from a Giada De Laurentiis recipe and Nestle Florentine Cookies.

The best thing about panna cotta is that it’s so versatile. You can tell by the flavours I made that it can be paired with virtually anything. The panna cotta itself has a creamy, almost silky texture. Its subtle flavour complements well with both sweet and tart. You can tell by my panna cotta shots that I love, love, love different flavours, colours and textures in my dessert.
