Panna Cotta Shots

Panna cotta, a very simple old Italian dessert made from cooked cream, is getting a new look. Celine Plano, former executive pastry chef at the Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco, serves the sweet cream in shot glasses, topped with neon-colored liqueurs and syrups. People can limit themselves to one mini dessert or try every flavor.

We found fun, inexpensive shot glasses at Ikea ( www.ikea.com) and went wild with colors that stopped people mid-stride on their way past the test kitchen. Shocking colors aside, though, panna cotta is still just thickened cream at heart―and easy to make.
