I made Panna Cotta, the typical Italian dessert, before. So the February challenge of Daring Bakers was quite easy for me. The Florentine cookies, which by the way I know only with nuts and candied fruits, were a bit of a challenge. Like some other Daring Bakers I ended up with huge cookies. Fortunately still delicious!
For the Panna Cotta I used a ginger flavored white chocolate I recently received for a secret chocolate test. Very yummy! Instead of filling the cookies with chocolate I sprinkled some over the white Panna Cotta, so at least it visible on the white plate. ;-)
The February 2011 Daring Bakers challenge was hosted by Mallory from A Sofa in the Kitchen. She chose to challenge everyone to make Panna Cotta from a Giada De Laurentiis recipe and Nestle Florentine Cookies.
