  • About

Sfogliatelle frolle are sold in Naples right beside the flaky variety (see preceding recipe). The name constitutes a contradiction in terms, since sfogliatelle literally means “flaky pastries,” and to prepare them with pasta frolla, which has a tender, cakey texture after it is baked, eliminates all possibility of flakiness. Fortunately, such contradictions are not bothersome to Neapolitans, and another excellent pastry is the result.<
