Mascarpone Panna Cotta with Cinnamon and Coffee

Mascarpone Panna Cotta with Cinnamon and Coffee
Serves 4
To serve panna cottas unmolded, as pictured, add an additional ½ teaspoon of gelatin powder to the recipe and spray 6-ounce ramekins with cooking spray before portioning. Unmold by running a sharp knife around the outside and inverting onto serving plates.
  1. 1 cup heavy cream
  2. 8 ounces mascarpone cheese
  3. ½ cup granulated sugar
  4. 2 teaspoons instant espresso powder
  5. 1 vanilla bean, scraped
  6. 1 cup whole milk
  7. ¼ ounce (1 package) unflavored gelatin
  8. ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  9. 12 ladyfinger cookies
  1. Combine heavy cream, mascarpone, sugar, espresso powder, and vanilla in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is smooth. Remove from heat, cover, and set aside for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, pour milk into a small bowl and sprinkle in gelatin powder. Set aside for 5 minutes to “bloom.”
  3. Return heavy cream mixture to a low simmer over low heat. Add milk-gelatin mixture and stir until no lumps remain.
  4. Divide custard evenly among serving glasses and refrigerate, uncovered, for at least 2 hours.
  5. Just before serving, pulse cocoa powder and ladyfingers in a food processor until fine crumbs form. Sprinkle mixture over tops of set custards.
