Trader Joe's Fans Can't Get Enough Of One Hard-To-Pronounce Pastry
By Haldan Kirsch
In April, Trader Joe's launched a frozen dessert called sfogliatella (pronounced sfoh-lee-ah-TELL-a,) and fans say it’s one of the best things from the chain.
The pastry is a cone-shaped, multi-layered dessert filled with ricotta and candied oranges, and a box of four sells for $4.49.
Sfogliatelle is a pastry found in bakeries and cafes throughout Italy. It supposedly originated in the Santa Rosa monastery outside of Naples in the 1700s.
There are two main styles available — sfogliatelle frolla, which is more similar to pie dough, and sfogliatelle riccia, which is made of thin sheets of dough covered in butter.
Trader Joe's recommends reheating the sfogliatelle in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 35-45 minutes. Make sure to coat the baking sheet with oil to prevent sticking.
You can also reheat these sweet treats in an air fryer for 30 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit to achieve a perfect deep brown that you’d see in a proper Italian bakery.
