Bowl of Savoy is a delicious cream cheese dessert

Bowl of Savoy is a delicious dessert with cream cheese. It has a delicate flavor base due to the cream cheese that progressively reveals candied fruits and raisins soaked in Marsala.

We, here in Piedmont, are used to prepare the bowl of Savoy with a particular type of cheese typical of the Langhe and Monferrato called seiras. I tried to prepare it with a cream cheese like Philadelphia and I found it very similar to the original and just as delicious.
