We have been zeppole fans for years and love to keep trying all the different versions made by local bakeries.
This particular zeppole smiled up at Penny from the display case at Antoine's Pastry Shop in Newton.
Antoine's makes a lovely example of the pastry with a light, crisp shell, abundant filling ...
... and a nice dollop of cherries on the top.
A big thank you to our friend Vinnie for introducing us to this shop!
Here are our "Zeppole Posts" from other year's pastry celebrations.
This post from 2015 tells you a bit about the history of zeppole and a different style that we enjoyed during our years in Rhode Island.
March for Zeppole di San Giuseppe! features Maria's Pastry Shop in the North End.
