Cool custard is what panna cotta is all about. Add a layer of fruit compote, such as the mango version above, and it's a chill summer dessert. There are no eggs in panna cotta, though the custard is made with cream and gelatin. In fact, according to The Gourmet Cookbook, "panna cotta means 'cooked cream' in Italian," and it's a dessert you need to make at least four hours in advance, so it can set. (Here's a Gourmet recipe for vanilla panna cotta with a fresh mango compote.)
Amp up the creaminess by adding yogurt to the cream. This citrusy panna cotta di casa recipe calls for lemon yogurt, lemon curd and mascarpone cheese, and is served with a blueberry sauce.
