This pumpkin panna cotta is perfectly creamy and resembles a pumpkin pie minus the crust. That is, unless you decide to add it to the top in the form of a crumble as we like to do it.
With all the flavor and the same, smooth and creamy mouthfeel, this panna cotta will help you bring a new take on your favorite holiday dessert to the table this holiday season. It's the perfect make-ahead dessert!
Panna Cotta, which translates to “cooked cream” in Italian, is a cream that has been flavored, sweetened, and thickened with gelatin in order to hold its shape. While it may sound intimidating, panna cotta is actually one of the easiest desserts you can make. If you have ever made a JELL-O pudding, then you have made a panna cotta.
The one knock-on Panna Cottas tends to be that they become rather monotonous and lack depth and dimension after the first few bites. The best way to prevent this is to add a complementary topping. Not only will it make your dessert more visually appealing, but it will add multiple flavors and additional textures.
Like I mentioned, I like to top the panna cotta with crumbled graham cracker crumbs and spiced whipped cream because then the dessert ends up tasting exactly like a pumpkin pie. Think of it as a pumpkin pie in a glass!
This pumpkin panna cotta is essentially a crust-less pumpkin pie. With all of the flavor and the same, smooth and creamy mouthfeel, it will help you bring a new take on your favorite holiday dessert to the table.
