Bomboloni Alla Crema - Italian Cream Filled Donuts
Another amazing thing to make for Chanukah. Bomboloni, fluffy pillows of rich and tender fried pastry dough rolled in sugar and filled with velvety Crema Pasticcera (Italian Pastry Cream), fresh and warm out of the oven. Have I enticed you to indulge? One thing’s for certain – one Bombolone is never enough. Recipe is courtesy of Grace of La Mia Vita Dolce from Thanks Grace!
