Easy Apple Panna Cotta | With Just 4 Ingredients | Italian Dessert

Apple Panna cotta, a delicious Italian dessert…

Panna cotta is one of the easiest desserts that can be whipped up with very few ingredients. It’s rich, velvety & will melt in your mouth. It’s basically cooked cream, in Italian Panna cotta means cooked cream. After I went apple picking, I’ve apple abundance in my kitchen & I’ve been turning apples into sweet & savory dishes.

When I had to make a dessert for Thanksgiving dinner, I couldn’t think of anything but apple panna cotta. Pureed apples were added to the cooked cream, as a thickening agent I’ve added agar-agar; panna cotta turned out to be delish. I couldn’t be any happier.
