Patrica Turo inspired me to make these wonderful SfogliatelleÂ Italian Pastries from her blog this Easter @Piacere Food and Travel Without Rules.Â These pastry are a bit time consuming but the taste resultsÂ were fabulous, however a little more practice is needed while making theseÂ 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 hersÂ perfect, please refer to her site as she has fabulous instructions, step by step...

Makes 16 large or 32 small pastries
I adaptedÂ parts of the recipes toÂ my taste,Â I made the doughÂ usingÂ Â her doughÂ 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.
