St. Joseph’s Day Sfinge

19 Mar

Go out today and eat a sfinge, my friends, because today is March 19th: St. Joseph’s Day! My ancestors are from Foggia in Italy, and my family always follows the tradition of eating at least one sfinge – St. Joseph’s pastry – during Lent. It’s my favorite pastry of all time.

A sfinge is made of pâte à choux, filled with cannoli cream, and usually topped with a cherry and candied orange peel. Get yours now before Easter arrives! I’ve already had one two days ago, but I think I have to have one more.

Get the recipe.
