Panna Cotta (Cooked Cream)
In heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat the cream slowly. Add the sugar, almond extract, salt and vanilla bean. Stir well and put aside.
Bloom the gelatin sheets in cold water until soft, 5 to 10 minutes. Wring gently to removed excess water, and then add to the heated cream and stir well. Pour into a large loaf pan and chill overnight.
