All-time Favorite Dessert?

I have come to be quite obsessed with panna cotta!  Besides ice cream (and perhaps all frozen desserts), it could very well be one of my all-time favorites.  The catch?  It has to be the right texture - one that just holds it's shape, one that falls apart when touched by a spoon, one that melts in your mouth.  Can you tell that I'm a little picky?

Coconut Lime Panna Cotta [09.21.2009]

The panna cotta itself is made with coconut milk, whole milk and cream steeped with lime zest.  The top is garnished with a prickly pear gelee, a coconut "snowball" and lime zest

I loved the colors of this dessert and the fact that I was able to capture the subtle green hue of the panna cotta.
