Story Behind this Recipe
The cassata that I had at a restaurant was so delicious, so I made an easy version at home.
Use any of your favorite dried fruits, nuts, or chocolate! I recommend cranberries because they have just enough tartness. Add cream cheese to the heavy whipping cream, and your cassata will have a really authentic taste.
