Cassatedde a sicilian pastry made for easter??

In American I guess it would translate to Ricotta Turnovers or deep fried pockets of ricotta cheese, sugar, chocolate chips!!! The best thing you will ever taste in life or in heaven.
It puts the zeppole to shame and thats saying alot from a guy who worships le zeppole!

Anyone know where I can find them in the 5 boros? Im looking for an authentic Sicilian bakery that makes them the right way. There was a small cafe in my hood that made them for St. Josephs and Easter time but they moved back to Sicily.
