Minni of Sant’Agata
Triquetra - CC3.0
"Minni" or "cassateddi" di Sant'Aita are traditional sweets of Catania and in particular of the feast of Sant'Agata in Catania. The Minni di Sant'Aita refer to the breasts that were snatched from the saint during the martyrs to which she was subjected to force her to renounce her faith. The minni di Sant'Agata are prepared with a semi-spherical shell of shortcrust pastry and stuffed with ricotta, chocolate and candied fruit. A fine and frail casket of shortcrust pastry contains a greedy filling similar to that of cassata, a soft and white lemon icing wraps it, the candied cherry on top completes the whole.
