Lemony Panna Cotta

Panna Cotta ----
a delicious milk pudding dessert ---
made with milk cream sugar flavouring and gelatin.

I've made numerous types -- buttermilk, chocolate, passion fruit, blood orange, and plain ole vanilla.

This Easter I made Lemon. Served with a raspberries.
What could make it even better ----- Madeleines!!
Well unfortunately I forgot that mostly everything is closed today ----
I did not have any butter and one egg short.
So I did a load of laundry instead.

Lemon Panna Cotta
1 Tablespoon gelatin                       
1/4 cup water                                      
2 cups 35% cream                             
1 cup milk                                           
1/2 cup sugar                                      
Grated zest of 2 lemons    

Sprinkle gelatin in a small bowl with the 1/4 cup water.
Bring the cream, milk, zest, and sugar to a warm temp --- do not boil --- to dissolve the sugar.
Add the dissolved gelatin to the cream mixture and whisk til incorporated.
Strain into  a 4 cup measuring cup.
Pour into 6 - 8  1/2 cup ramekins or martini glasses or whatever vessel you have on hand.
Cover tops with plastic wrap. Refrig about 6 hours.

And looky looky who made a surprise appearance for supper.
