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.

I actually made the Panna Cotta at the beginning of the month for my birthday dessert.  I made the chocolate version and then layered it with Raspberry Gelee.  It turned out fantastic.  It took some time to get the layers to set so that I was able to layer it correctly, but it turned out beautifully.  I loved the flavor of the chocolate and the raspberry together.

With regard to the Florentine Cookies, well I slacked a little and they are currently cooling on the counter waiting to be filled with melted chocolate, yummy.  Once those are finished I will update this post.  I planned to do all of this yesterday but we decided to visit a couple of Baby stores to get an idea of what we want to get for our little symbiote 🙂

The Florentine Cookies were very yummy.  I kept a few in the house and Mike took the rest to work where they disappeared very quickly.  So I would say that that recipe is a success and very easy to make 🙂 (more…)
