Tiramisu Panna Cotta
By: Linda - Englewood, FL - Recipe Contest 2015
"I like the light and freshness taste of Panna Cotta, especially after a big meal. I wanted to create a recipe that was unique, but with a familiar taste. My favorite dessert is Italian Tiramisu. I enjoy eating this dessert with a nice cup of espresso. I paired the two together and created this rich, but light, great tasting Tiramisu Panna Cotta."
