An Italian Tradition
Whoa! What’s this delicious looking treat you ask?
It’s a zeppole! It’s been a tradition for me as far back as I can remember to have a zeppole on St. Joseph’s Day! I’m 50% Italian, and it’s an Italian thing.
If you’re wondering what a zeppole is made of, I’ll tell ya! It’s a fried dough pastry filled with custard or cannoli-style pastry cream. The consistency of a zeppole is usually light and puffy, and it is delicious!
Every year I make it a point to stop at a bakery and get some for me and my husband. This year is a little different. One, we moved, so I need to find a new bakery in MA to get zeppoles. (We used to get them in RI.) Two, I really want Michael and Larry to try a zeppole because they have never had one. So they pretty much have to be the best zeppoles ever, so they know that I’m having them try a yummy treat!
Which bakery do you think has the BEST zeppoles for St. Joseph’s Day?
