Neighborhood Photo: Zeppole Heaven for St. Joseph’s Day

St. Joseph’s Day was this week, March 19th, bringing the seasonal offerings of zeppole, also known as sfinge, to the North End pastry shops. This delectable pair came from Maria’s Pastry on Cross Street, featuring one traditional with custard and jelly and the other with cannoli cream.

  1. These are the best….so yummy and so rich. Had to avoid going into Maria’s after I had one of these early in the season. They are like potato chips….hard to eat just one.
