Dear PoPville – St. Joseph’s Day Pastries?

St. Joseph's Day pastries

“Dear PoPville,

My family always celebrated St. Joseph’s Day on March 19th. The best part of this celebration was the St. Joseph’s Day pastries we had every year. All the local bakeries made them along with the supermarkets. They are puff pastries filled with cannoli or vanilla cream filling with powered sugar and a cherry on top. They were delicious and remind me of home. The problem is I can never seem to find them in DC. Does anyone know of a bakery that sells these wonderful pastries on the 19th?”

I’d check with Litteri’s in the old part of Union Market and at The Italian Store in Arlington. Anyone else know or have good guesses?
