Little Wine Cookies / Biscottini al Vino
Christmas cooking would not be complete without pomegranates.The fruit is often depicted in Italian works of religious art. It is said that the multitude of seeds, nestled together so neatly in one fruit, is like the union of people who make up one church.
For eating, the seeds are squeezed to make a drink called granatina, or
they are sprinkled into salads of bitter chicories. This recipe is a
modern departure for another use of the fruit, as a sauce for ricotta
The cake, as well as the sauce, can be made two days ahead. Skim-milk ricotta best because it approximates the texture of Italian ricotta.
