This morning while whipping up a few batches of my famous St. Joseph Zeppole for tonight’s Novena Coffee, I decide to fix a special tray for my Comere Bridget Mathews, to serve at their families St. Joseph Feast at the Mathews family home this afternoon! After all a St. Joseph Feast is not complete without St. Joseph Zeppole Pastry. A Traditional St. Joseph Zeppole is filled with a pastry custard and or sweetened ricotta cream filling toped with either cherries, candied fruits and or small chocolate pieces, finished with a light dusting of Confectioners sugar. Today I prepared my signature St. Joseph Zeppole Pastry, in an equal assortment of pastry custard, and sweetened ricotta cream filling, accompanied with sweetened cherries!
Bridget Mathews Writes~ Melodey might have to have dessert before lunch! Thank you Felicia for the zeppole delivery!! They look delish!!!
Each year I prepared 168 St. Joseph Zeppole for our families Feast, and all 168 Zeppole were enjoyed as fast as the freshly baked pastry shells were filled. This year I’m definitely planning to make a few dozen more!
