Sharing is caring!

Italian Cream Puffs are always made around this time of year and especially on the day, March 19th to celebrate the Feast of San Giuseppe, St. Joseph’s Day. If you’ve never had a San Giuseppe cream puff before, you’re in for a real treat! These cream puffs are light buttery pastries baked then filled with luscious cream and topped with a cherry and some powdered sugar. Yum!

Italian Cream Puffs for St. Joseph’s Day can be filled with 2 different types of cream fillings.

One cream puff is filled with a traditional vanilla custard (the Neapolitan version, known as the zeppola or zeppoli) and the other cream filling is made with a rich-cannoli cream, the Sicilian version traditionally known as the Sfinge.

Each one is topped with a cherry and some powdered sugar, making these look as if a professional baker made them. And, they are SO amazingly delicious!!

We always look forward to these wonderful treats every year!

What is a Sfinge?

My sister and I also grew up with these gems, but they have a special meaning to my husband. They were always consumed on his Name Day; which in Italy, it is a celebration that is larger than one’s own birthday.

The Sfinge is traditionally a deep-fried pastry filled with candied citrus and rich ricotta cream.

While they are consumed primarily on St. Joseph’s Day, they are now made all year-round in Sicily and can be found in every pastry shop all over Italy and here too in the states as well.

A classic cream puff pastry filled with luscious cream. Italian Cream Puffs for St. Joseph’s Day are relatively easy to make. You only need a little time and patience.

1. First, staple ingredients are used to make these delicious pastries: butter, eggs, and flour. Then, I decided to bake them instead of deep-frying. Yes, of course.

Baked = easier, healthier, and lighter texture in the pastry!!

2. Next, I made both cream fillings (recipes for both are at the bottom of this post).

a. The cannoli-cream filling: is made with whole milk ricotta, confectioners’ sugar, vanilla extract, lemon zest, cinnamon, and mini chocolate chips.

b. And the Neapolitan vanilla custard cream: is filled with a simple mixture of vanilla pudding mixed with whipped cream.

Super easy!

Ingredients needed to make the pastry…

  • 6 Tbsp. (3/4 of a stick) unsalted butter

  • 3/4 cup (96g) sifted all-purpose flour

Directions to Make and Bake the Pastries:

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (218C). Prepare 2 cooking sheets for baking. Lightly spray with cooking spray, or use silicone mats for baking or parchment paper. Sift the flour onto a sheet of wax paper.

2. In a medium saucepot, heat butter with water and salt over high heat. Stirring until butter is completed melted.

3. Reduce the heat to low, add sifted flour – all at once – and with a fork or wooden spoon, stir vigorously, until the mixture leaves the sides of the pan and forms a smooth ball.

4. Remove from heat, transfer the dough into a mixing bowl to cool, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, stirring vigorously (with a wooden spoon) after each addition until it comes to a smooth and creamy texture. The soft mixture should have a satin-like sheen to it.

5. Drop by tablespoon (I used 2 spoons to help me scoop and drop the dough onto the baking sheet), about 3-inches apart onto each baking sheet. Shaping each round with points up in the center.

6. BAKE for 18 to 20 minutes for 18 medium size pastries.

7. Remove and poke each pastry on top with a skewer. This will allow the steam inside to escape. Then return to the oven for 2 to 3 minutes more. Pastries should be firm to the touch.

8. Remove and set aside to cool completely before filling. Once they are completely cooled, fill them with either cream, top each with a cherry and refrigerate for at least 1 to 2 hours before serving.

Yields: 18 to 20 Italian pastries/cream puffs

  • 1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon

  • 2 to 3 Tbsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • small jar of maraschino cherries, rinse and pat dry

  • Optional: candied citrus to garnish

In a mixing bowl, gently stir ricotta, powdered sugar, vanilla, lemon zest, and cinnamon until well combined. Stir in mini chocolate chips, or more to your liking. Refrigerate for about 2 hours, or chill overnight before filling the pastries.

When ready, slice each pastry in half. Fill each one with ricotta cream and close the tops. Garnish with an extra teaspoon of ricotta cream on top, and add one maraschino cherry on top. Optional: also add a piece of candied citrus on top. Lightly sprinkle with powdered sugar over them and serve.
