    I tried to do this once, but my panna cotta ran under the crust. I always make panna cotta with milk and cream-I'll have to try your yogurt version, it looks lovely

    Thank you for your comment. Well, the original recipe calls for cream not yoghurt and more sugar, but I have modified it in order to make it more healthy. To avoid panna cotta or jelly running under the crust, it must be almost fully coagulated.
