Italian peach-shaped pastries in Manhattan?

Hey all, was wondering if someone could help me track these down. I'm not sure of the name, but on family vacations to Calabria, they were on all the pastry trays I went. They are cakes rolled into the shape of a peach and dusted pretty liberally with sugar on the outside. They look like this:

Would someone know where to find these?

  1. Are you sure they are not marzipan? Looks like marzipan. Either way, try Veniero's in the E Village.

    1. Sorry, I don't know who sells them here in Manhattan, but they are called Pesche dolci di pasta brioche. They are indeed pastries (not marzipan) and as the name implies, made with a brioche dough. They are usually stuffed with a pastry cream.

      1. You could try Eataly's pasticceria to see if they make them
