|Awaiting their chocolate drizzles...|
I did encounter a few issues. The first being, I made my strawberry gelee right after putting my panna cotta in the fridge. Not a smart move on my part. I would recommend waiting a few hours before making a gelee, if you even do, because the panna cotta needs time to set first. So, my gelee just kind of hung out for a bit. I also will probably not even make the gelee if I do panna cotta again, however, as it was a bit too gelled... it tasted a bit rubbery and I wound up eating around it. I might not have added enough fruit. Another issue, my Florentine cookies didn't seem to spread as much as they should have. Not sure what the issue was, but they were still pretty tasty.
I would like to make both of these desserts again. Next time I make the cookies I will probably cut back on the sugar a little bit. They were right on the cusp of being too sweet. The panna cotta, though, was spot on (minus the gelee).
