YIELD: Makes 5 to 6 Sfogliatelle


  • 1 package rectangular puff pastry
  • 1 cup pastry cream/crema pasticcera
  • 1/4 cup unsalted melted butter
  • granulated sugar as needed
  • powdered sugar for garnish as needed
1. First and foremost, cut the pastry sheet lengthwise in 3 long rectangles. Brush each rectangle with melted butter.
2. Layer the 3 strips, one on top of the other.
3. Roll the strips to form a log.
4. Wrap the log in parchment paper. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes. The pastry log will harden. Cut it into 1/4 inch thick slices. Leave to soften at room temperature.
5.Once soft, flatten with hand or use a rolling pin.
6. Take each piece in your hand and place some pastry cream in the center of the dough. Fold the dough and seal the sides to form a half moon.
7. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Arrange the sfogliatelle on the baking tray.
Sprinkle with granulated sugar and bake in a preheated oven at 350° F for about 15 to 20 minutes or until puffed up and light golden brown in colour.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
