Tiramisu Panna Cotta

Tiramisu Panna Cotta

"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 Black & Tan Coffee. I paired the two together and created this rich, but light, great tasting Tiramisu Panna Cotta."
