I love to decorate.... whether it be one style at a time or all at once...

tradition...

Do you have a tradition in your family? Whether it's something grand or something very simple (like mine) I think it's great when you follow a tradition that is a part of who you are.


Well like I said mine is very simple. For nearly 35 years now, come Easter time, I have been making these 'figolli' (Maltese Easter biscuits) give or take a couple of times. I was so close to not making them this year as I have been very busy .....


but I realised that what is the point of living our lives and everything we do if we can't stop and celebrate who we are and our family traditions!


I know I'm only talking about biscuits here, but I make quite a few and hand them out to family and on the occassion I don't make them I am always asked ..did you make figolli this year? and I ALWAYS regret not making them...





I made about 19 of these plate sized bikkies..


and took the better part of 2 days to make as I bake on one day and ice them the next...


Unfortunately the decoration could have been better but they do taste great. A vanilla biscuit top and bottom with an almond filling.. I even blanched the almonds and made the meal myself. A first for me. Everyone was delighted come Easter day and made it all soo worthwhile!!

take care, Maryann
