    Where in Mass can I purchase the sfogliatella frozen pastry. I live in Burlington, MA & would like to purchase it here if possible, thank you!

    Delicious. Flaky. Crunchy. Heavenly.

    This product is horrible. It is a hot mess – literally. I love the Pain au Chocolate and Pain au Almond but this pastry is horrendous. It bled out most of its “butter” onto the pain and then spilled over onto the bottom of the stove. I switched baking sheets and it still lost more “butter”. I had to use two towels to soak up the spilled oil. The pastries were so drenched in oil that they dripped onto my hand and burned me. What was suppose to be a sweet and easy dessert has turned into a major clean up. ZERO stars.

    I couldn’t believe these were at Trader Joe’s! I have paid $70 plus shipping to have these sent from New York, as a Christmas present for my husband. I just baked two of these and they came out great! I will bake them the full 40 minutes next time and let them cool on a paper towel. We ate these hot, right from the oven. I also used parchment paper. Good job TJ’s.

    Sfogliatelle is my favorite Italian pastry and as a former New Yorker living in Texas 22 years I’m excited that I can buy it at Trader Joe’s! I think this product is delicious and satisfies my craving for Sfogliatelle!

  7. Anna

    Almost as good as in Naples!!! Please bring them back asap.

  8. Tina T

    Please ask your manager in Annapolis Maryland to bring this Sfogliatelle Pastry into the store!
    I shouldn’t have to drive 45 minutes into Washington DC to buy it!

    Oh my God, these are delicious! This is my favorite Italian Pastry. They smelled delicious baking. We took them out of the oven to let them cool slightly. When I bit into the pastry it was still warm and creamy. It brought me back to Positano where I had my first warm sfogliatella. Honestly, it was just as good minus the spectacular view. Trader Joe’s- never discontinue this product!!

    These are my Napolitano mother’s favorite. But the instructions on the box are off. I’ve made them twice. They are nowhere near cooked after 35 or 40 minutes. The second time I made them, after 35 minutes, I raised the temp to 400 degrees for the last 5-10 minutes. Perfectly crispy! And I used parchment paper—much better than using a greased pan—they definitely don’t need extra butter or oil.

    These are absolutely delicious and authentic, but I agree with Cathy R. review-35-40 minutes is way too short and I tried them both in my regular old Frigidaire oven and Breville toaster oven, with the latter being the beast when it comes to temperature. In both cases, additional time was needed. For Frigidaire, I believe, another 30 minutes and for Breville, another 15. Once cooked, these are better than numerous Italian bakeries I have tried.

  12. Natalie B

    Freaking Fantastic! The baking time was off, as other reviewers have said. I relied on my eyes and baked until golden brown- at least 45 minutes on parchment paper. Deist with powdered sugar and don’t eat until cool to enjoy the incredible flakiness. Delish!

  13. Steve

    Excellent Sfog. I’d bake them next time on a cookie wire rack on top of a cookie sheet and use around 375 on the oven temp. for at least 40 min., probably longer…also sprinkle powder sugar on them, once they cool a bit…like Natale’s Summit Bakery in NJ….

    Why is this product no longer available? I am Italian American and found this pastry so delicious. Please bring this delicious product back

    Why is this product no longer available? I am Italian American and found this pastry so delicious. When will this delicious product back?

  16. KingOfBeacon

    I’m not sure about these. Flaky, crispy, sweet, good flavor but hot sweetened cheese was so off-putting. I feel like they would be so much better cold. This was like eating hot cannoli filling. Very weird.

    Hi all,
    I am Italian and my cousins spouses are from Naples. These sfogliatelle are so so so close to perfection – outside of eating them in Italy.
    Better than the shipment of sfogliatelle I ordered from NY.
    I decided to try one box. I cooked them in the over for breakfast and the family loved them. So I went back to Trader Joe’s and bought 12 boxes.
    Trader Joe’s purchasing department- please continue to sell this pastry

  19. Allison

  26. Susan Alonso

    Delicious. As a former New Yorker I was so happy to see them. Today I went to buy another box and they aren’t there. So sad. They were as good as any I got in the local Italian bakeries in Brooklyn. Bring them back to Austin.
