A Classic Strawberry Panna Cotta Recipe

Panna Cotta translates from Italian to English as “cooked cream.” And, as the words imply, this is a dessert of sweetened cream thickened with gelatin and then molded.

Because of the bright color and fanciful plating, this creamy dessert is showy enough for your Sunday Brunch or a date night where you want to show off your kitchen prowess.

Spray a 4-cup capacity gelatin mold or Bundt pan with cooking spray.

Add 1 1/2 cups of the whole milk to a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat.

To the barrel of a food processor,  add all the remaining ingredients.

Use a fine-mesh sieve to strain the strawberry mixture into a small bowl.
