Lemon Panna Cotta with Berries Recipe

Lemon Panna Cotta with Berries Recipe

Cool, creamy and pretty as a picture, this luscious Italian dessert is elegant enough for the fanciest dinner party. Instead of using ramekins, pour into cocktail glasses and chill for a dressier look. Mariela Petroski - Helena, Montana
