2  1/2 cups of heavy cream

1/3 cup of milk (whole or 2% depending on how you like it!)

1 packet of unflavored gelatin (1/4 ounce)

1  1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract


1. Pour the milk into a bowl and stir in the gelatin.

2. Pour the cream and sugar into a saucepan and place over medium heat. Stir the cream and sugar constantly, bringing the cream to a full boil.

4. Immediately mix in the vanilla extract.

5. Pour the mixture into six ramekins and cool uncovered on the counter for about a half hour until the mixture comes to room temperature.

6. Finally, cover the ramekins with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 hours.
