Patrica Turo inspired me to make these wonderful Sfogliatelle Italian Pastries from her blog this Easter @Piacere Food and Travel Without Rules.  These pastry are a bit time consuming but the taste results were fabulous, however a little more practice is needed while making these to get them right! I have to say out of the 30 I made only one was worthy enough for the pictures! I need alot more practice.. you can see from her awesome instructions and using a pasta machine, that helped get the dough thin enough to make hers perfect, please refer to her site as she has fabulous instructions, step by step…
Recipe Summary her recipe came from This recipe was taken from one of the chef’s antique cookbooks and she translated it into English.

Makes 16 large or 32 small pastries

I adapted parts of the recipes to my taste, I made the dough using  her dough recipe:

Patricia’s instructions worked very well, you will have to practice to get the right shape..

Sprinkle them with powdered sugar when they are hot out of the oven, and serve them warm if possible.

Yes, my one loan soldier that stands proud!
