I made this dessert recently not especially for Christmas. Just because I had frozen cherries (and some fresh cherries) and I wanted to use them.
The day before Christmas was difficult, because I had a very strong bee sting on my hand and arm. I had fever and almost could not do anything I did as I could the food and the next day I started taking some remedies.
I'm a little better today although I still have my hand inflamed. It's difficult to do things with a hand in bad conditions.
In any case I did this dessert yesterday, you can use frozen cherries or frozen raspberries, the base of the dessert is ricotta and yogurt.
And I love the pistachios they put a note of color to everything.
