Truthfully, I had originally wanted to make a pumpkin soup, but the weather around here hadn’t quite gotten to “soup weather” territory until very recently. While I was prepping this post it was more on the “ice cream weather” side of the thermometer, but since I’ve put out so many ice creams lately, I thought I’d go with the other most common cold dessert in our house – panna cotta.

  1. What a gorgeous panna cotta! As much as I’m excited for the holiday, I’m afraid my waistline needs to work harder, lol. Glad you share this maple pumpkin panna cotta. My sis in law (whom you met early this year) is a big fan and she will love this one.

    • Ha! My waistline always hates me around the holidays. Too many fun things to make and eat! 🙂
