Figolla approx 500g

One of the traditional Maltese Easter treats is the figolla; figolli in plural. The traditional Maltese “figolli” are almond pastries that are cut out to look like symbolic figures. The figolli are traditionally baked and eaten at the time of Easter. If you can not obtain these pastries it is quite easy to make them yourself. You can also make your own templates, like sheep, out of cardboard. The traditional shapes of figolli are men, women, fish and baskets; the last probably being symbols of fertility. Recently new forms have been added to the traditional such as; cars, lambs and butterflies. The shapes of humans are easily identified by the old-fashioned paper faces that are stuck on the icing. Another traditional decoration is the Easter egg wrapped in bright colours.
