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 Nestlé Florentine Cookies.
I’m sick. I made panna cotta but I skipped the cookies (I’ll get to them sometime this semester, I’m sure). I don’t feel like writing a post or taking pictures, but I made a cardamom and vanilla flavored panna cotta that I thickened with a gelatin substitute made of a combination of thickeners, and it turned out having a tapioca pudding type texture, except firmer than pudding. Lumpy. Not how panna cotta should be. So stick to gelatin (or agar agar).
