Kerotozzo is a series of Aoyagi Sohonke's classic Japanese confectionery "Frog Manju" made into a Western-style "Maritozzo" confectionery of Italian origin. This time, a flavor designed for "Respect-for-Senior-Citizens Day" on September 19 was prepared.

The thin pastry dough is filled with red bean paste, and cream blended with fresh cream and cream cheese is placed between the pastries. Lemon juice is also added to create a moist, not-too-sweet sweet treat that is said to be a combination of Japanese and Western elements.
