  • Pour mixture into the prepared ramekins. Cover and chill 4 hours or until firm.

  • Meanwhile, for cranberry sauce, in a small saucepan combine cranberries, apple juice and 2 to 3 tablespoons sugar. Bring to boiling; reduce heat to medium. Cook, uncovered, 5 to 8 minutes or until slightly thick, stirring occasionally. Cool.

  • Unmold panna cotta onto a platter or dessert plates. Top with cranberry sauce and pistachios.

Tips

Tips: We do not recommend a sugar substitute for this recipe.

To unmold the panna cotta, loosen the edges from the sides of each ramekin with a sharp knife. Dip bottom of the ramekin into warm water for 5 to 10 seconds, then invert onto a platter or dessert plate and remove the ramekin.
