White chocolate and red berries panna cotta

Another single portion, another different glaze … ..red berries glaze.
A white chocolate panna cotta.
A light one, not so thick like I wanted it to be, but a glaze able to give a pleasant taste and a nice color.
The cranberries shortcrust pastry is the perfect combination with the not too sweet panna cotta, giving a little “crispness” to the dessert.
A simple but tasty treat.

Notes

Shortcrust pastry: With the pastry you will get 13 pieces.
To get 6, you can halve the recipe.
If you do not use cookies immediately, you can freeze.
Glaze: I suggest to glaze at 77F – 25°C, so that it covers better the panna cotta.
Keep the glaze at a changeless temperature…..otherwise, you will have 2 different colors, like me.
