Best Answer

Sfogliatelle is the name of an Italian pastry. The word is a feminine gender noun that literally means 'leaves, layers'. The pastry is made with a phyllo type dough that's cut into discs. They're layered so the layers of discs look like layers of leaves. They tend to be filled with an orange flavored ricotta filling.
