    Dear Michael
    My mom also made scarpel. Did you ever get the recipe?

  2. Michael says:

    My grandmother (from Mirabello Sannitico) used to make a special pastry only on St. Joseph’s Day. She called them Scarpel. Can you send me more information on the Scarpel? And the recipe if you have it.
