Alfonso’s Pastry Shoppe Rainbow Cookie Doughnut
OHMIGAWD. I loved this doughnut. My godsister was thoughtful enough to pick some up for me when I visited them in Staten Island, and I can’t even explain how excited I was to try them. She bought these rainbow cookie doughnuts from Alfonso’s Pastry Shoppe on Victory Boulevard in Staten Island and they are absolutely delicious.
Inspired by the Italian rainbow cookie, which is an almond cake/cookie/jam/petite four dipped in chocolate, this doughnut is not for the faint of heart. It’s doughnut, jam, doughnut, jam, doughnut and then everything is dipped in chocolate. It’s HUGE! You could easily split one between 2-4 people. If you are a fat cow like me, you would probably be up for eating the whole thing. I say that because I just ate ½ of one before I wrote this up.
