Cappuccino Panna Cotta

This isn't supposed to be a recipe website (Lord knows, there are enough of those around!), but sometimes I'll find a recipe that is just so-o-o-o good that I want to publish it.  So, here is a great recipe for a tasty dessert:

Cappuccino Panna Cotta

Makes 6 half-cup servings

      1     cup   Milk

      2     cup   Whipping Cream - Divided

        1/2 cup   Granulated Sugar

      1 1/4 Tsps  Vanilla Extract - divided

            Pinch Salt

      2 1/4 Tsps  Unflavored Gelatin

      2 1/2 Tbsps Strong Espresso Coffee

      2     Tsps  Icing Sugar

                  Ground Cinnamon

  1. Sprinkle the gelatin over the milk. Let stand until soft.
  2. Meanwhile put sugar and 1/4 cup of water in a saucepan over medium heat.  Bring to a boil.  Cover and cook for 3 minutes.  Uncover and cook until sugar starts to turn golden, swirling the pan occasionally.  Remove from heat, plunge the bottom of the pan into a cold water bath to prevent cooking the sugar more. Allow to cool until its starts to thicken.
  3. Using a fork, drizzle some of the cooked sugar over a piece of parchment lightly sprayed with cooking oil to form decorations for each serving. Store in an airtight container until ready to use.
  4. Return remaining sugar, coffee and  1  1/2 cups of cream to medium-low heat and cook until the sugar is completely dissolved.  Stir frequently.
  5. Add salt and milk/gelatin solution.  Heat until the gelatin is completely dissolved.  Do not allow to boil.
  6. Remove from heat, mix in 1 tsp of the vanilla and divide evenly into individual serving dishes.  Allow to cool to room temperature, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until set, at least 4 hours or overnight.
  7. Just prior to serving, whip the remaining cream to soft peaks.  Blend in the remaining vanilla and the icing sugar.  Spoon a dollop of the whipped cream over each serving and sprinkle with cinnamon.  Garnish with the sugar decorations made earlier.

The first time I made this, I served it in Cappuccino cups.  It made quite an impression!
