sfogliatelle at fortunato brothers


I couldn't even begin to try and pronounce this pastry's name, but the internet can! check it out here. my mother in-law said this was her mother's favorite. last sunday we ordered them in homage to her while visiting her old nieghborhood in the williamsburg section of brooklyn.

Looks delicious to me.

Thérèse said...

Did you have the plain one or the one filled with cream?

Nori said...

looks delicious!
by the way lily, is it broocklyn style to put spoon in the hole?

Lily Hydrangea said...

thanks Kitty!

& yes Oakland, it was delicious.

Hey Therese! I didn't know there was an option! we all had the one filled with cream.

Hi Nori, I'm not sure but I think it may be Italian style.

Oh, now you have done it. I wondered if they could be made at home and the answer is "not in my home!" Just kidding. I have accomplished macarons through many, many batches approaching the challenge scientifically. I am not sure that I can take on these delightful Italian pastries.

So, I will look forward to finding authentic sfogliatelle in my travels, and you have given me a starting point!

I looked at the word "sfogliatelle" and thought "That's easy for you to say" but I guess I was wrong!
Filled with cream? Amazing. I would want two. LOL
Very tempting photos.

Assolutamente delizioso! But if you eat like this, you'll never want to go to that nude beach. Yeah, I'd rather have the sfogliatelle too!
