INSTRUCTIONS

Panna Cotta Instructions

  1. Add cream and milk to a heavy-bottomed saucepan. With a paring knife, cut the vanilla bean open lengthwise and scrape out insides. Place the bean and scrapings in the cream. Bring the mixture to a low boil (small bubbles will form around the edges of pan). Remove from heat, cover the pot tightly with plastic wrap and infuse for about 20 minutes.
     
  2. In a small bowl or pot, gently stir together gelatin and water. Let sit 5 to 10 minutes. Place over low heat or in a double boiler and warm through until gelatin has dissolved and is clear.
     
  3. Stir sugar into the cream mixture and bring it back to a low boil. Whisk cream mixture into gelatin. Let cool 5 minutes.

Boozy Peach Caramel Sauce Instructions

  1. Place peach slices and water into a blender and pureé.  Pour into a medium bowl. Add the caramel syrup and brandy, stir. Store in refrigerator in a mason jar or airtight container if not using immediately.

Building the Parfaits

  1. Spoon 3 tablespoons of panna cotta cream into each glass, filling 3/4 full.
     
  2. Place glasses on tray and chill in refrigerator for at least 4 hours. The panna cotta mixture will thicken as it chills.
     
  3. Spoon approximately 1 tablespoon of the peach caramel sauce into each glass on top of the thickened panna cotta to fill.
