Daring Bakers: Panna Cotta and Florentine Cookies

I want to start off by stating I hate milk.  I do not like the smell let alone the taste.  This is most likely why I was not huge on the taste of half of this challenge.  It did however look beautiful.  I think with some tweaking it could be something I would really enjoy.  I also wanted to try making a fruit gelee which this challenge forced me to do.   The cookies were pretty decent and very simple to make.  It also makes me want to start working with Agar-agar.  I still drool over these pictures and am going to have to make some interesting creations of my own.


  1. Oooh details!!! What is the purple color layer? Your cookies turned out so lacey and wonderful looking!

  2. I may have forgotten to add any sort of recipe to this post!

    For the florentines I followed the recipe the challenge gave for daring bakers and for the panna cotta I followed the recipe and added a blueberry gelee and then for the middle layer it is the panna cotta and blueberry gelee mixed together and used as a middle layer.
