The classic Italian pastry recipe that Bill Spadea’s crew devoured

Subscribe to New Jersey 101.5 FM on

If you grew up Italian Catholic, or lived near an Italian bakery, chances are at some point you enjoyed a classic pastry commonly eaten in mid-March, to celebrate the feast day of a saint.

This Sunday Italians, Catholics and anyone who just really loves good pastries, will be clamoring to make or buy a treat known as Zeppole di San Giuseppe. Simply put, it’s a light, airy pastry shell filled with a cream similar to the kind found in really good cannoli. Traditionally, the zeppole is eaten on March 19 to celebrate the Feast of Saint Joseph.

Last week, Jersey Girl Cara DiFalco, whose voice can be heard doing traffic reports on New Jersey 101.5, visited the Bill Spadea Show to demonstrate how to make Zeppole di San Giuseppe. It didn’t take long for the morning show crew to celebrate the feast of Saint Joseph early, and gobble up every single pastry.

The video explains how the pastries are made and the full recipe can be found on DiFalco’s website, caradifalco.com.
