  1. In a small bowl, soften gelatin in cold water; set aside. Place cream, confectioners' sugar, and vanilla bean in a saucepan. Stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a simmer. Simmer gently for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and discard the vanilla bean.
  2. Add gelatin and water to the hot cream mixture. Stir until gelatin dissolves. Pour into 6 lightly oiled 1/2-cup dariole molds (or other small cylindrical molds) and refrigerate overnight or at least 8 hours.
  3. To make the berry sauce, combine berries and sugar in a bowl. Crush berries slightly with the back of a spoon, and mix in the brandy. Let stand for an hour until it has a syrupy consistency.
  4. Unmold panna cottas and serve with berry sauce.

I use 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (instead of bean), 3 cups Half and Half (instead of cream), and Carmel (instead of berry sauce). Always satisfies.

Super easy. Very good. Next time I will probably reduce the fat by using half and half. I added vanilla extract because I didn't have vanilla beans. Great!

Fantastic recipe. Only I used orange sauce instead of berry
