Saint Joseph’s Day Cream Puffs

About this time every year my friend Mike mentions his yearning for Zeppole di San Giuseppe, or Saint Joseph’s Day Cream Puffs (Saint Joseph’s Day is March 19).  This year, I did some research and came up with my own version. It’s not exactly traditional, as I did not replace any of the butter with lard and I added almond extract. I figured it didn’t matter, as I’m not Italian. And anyway, according to tradition, each household comes up with their own version anyway.  Peering over at the liquor cabinet, maybe adding Amaretto could be another option next time.

The recipe is now posted on the PastureLand website. Check it out and whip up a batch this weekend or next to celebrate this Italian Feast day
