This recipe takes an Italian classic to new heights.
Buttermilk Panna Cotta with Berries
2 tablespoons water
1½ teaspoons unflavored gelatin
Nonstick vegetable oil spray
1 cup whipping cream
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon peel
½ cup sugar

Pour 2 tablespoons water into small bowl; sprinkle gelatin over. Let stand until gelatin softens, about 10 minutes. Lightly spray 6 ¾-cup ramekins or custard cups with nonstick spray. Heat cream, lemon peel, sugar in medium saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring constantly until sugar dissolves. Increase heat. Bring just to low boil, stirring occasionally. Add gelatin mixture; remove from heat. Stir until gelatin dissolves. Cool mixture to lukewarm, stirring often. Stir in buttermilk, vanilla; divide mixture among ramekins. Refrigerate panna cotta until set, about 4 hours or overnight. Serve in ramekins, topped with berries.
Yield: Serves 6.
