Curl up with your loved one and a dish of this vanilla panna cotta with white wine sauce. It’s the perfect dessert for dinner for two, being ridiculously easy and foolproof. The rich and creamy vanilla panna cotta, paired with the sweet white wine sauce and fresh strawberries, creates a classic dessert that looks elegant and tastes delicious.
What is Panna Cotta?
Panna Cotta is an Italian dessert that is comprised of sweetened cream thickened with gelatin and then molded. The word Panna Cotta means “cooked cream” in Italian. It’s naturally gluten-free, too.
Panna Cotta can be molded into any shape you want, making it a fun dessert to create and style, however, for this recipe, we’re letting it mold inside a wine glass of your choice. Panna cotta is also quick, easy, and nearly foolproof, which makes it an easy go-to dessert.
How to make a white wine simple syrup
In partnership with Missouri Wines, we’re featuring a semi-sweet white wine from Noboleis Vineyards – the Vignoles. It’s a smooth white wine, which made it a great choice for a white whine simple syrup. To make the white wine simple syrup:
- Add 1 cup Noboleis Vignoles (or other semi-sweet white wine) and 1 cup of sugar to a large saucepan and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer.
- Stir occasionally to help dissolve the sugar.
- Let the mixture simmer and reduce down to about half, then remove from heat and let cool. It should thicken just a bit as it cools.

This is hands-down our favorite chicken wings recipe – which is why we’re giving it the title best chicken wings recipe!
If you liked this recipe, please give it a 5-star rating.
- 24 fresh chicken wings/drummettes
- Salt & pepper for seasoning
- 2 cup high-temp frying oil (ex. Avocado oil)
- 1 stick unsalted butter
- 2 cups hot sauce (I use Frank’s Hot Sauce)
- 1 Tbsp red pepper flakes
- 1/2 cup ranch dressing
- In a medium-sized saucepan, add the hot sauce, butter, ranch dressing, and red pepper flakes. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the butter is melted. Reduce heat to low.
- In a deep frying pan, add the 2 cups of oil and heat over medium-high heat until it reaches 350 degrees F.
- Season the chicken wings with salt and pepper, then add them to the hot oil.
- Cook for 10 minutes on one side, occasionally moving the wings to keep them from sticking to the bottom. Then flip and cook for another 10 minutes.
- Once finished cooking, remove from oil and transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to rest.
- Turn the oven onto the broil setting and prepare a baking sheet. Line a baking sheet with foil then set a cooling rack on top of the lined baking sheet. Or, you can use a broiler pan.
- Using tongs, dip the wings individually into the sauce and place onto the cooling rack. Place the pan into the oven and let the wings sit under the broiler for about 2-3 minutes. Watch closely so they do not burn.
- Remove from the oven, then once again dip each wing individually into the sauce one again, then transfer to a serving platter and serve immediately.
- Be sure to use fresh or thawed chicken wings – never frozen.
- Adjust the red pepper flakes quantity to increase or decrease heat.
