I've been a bit manic lately, and haven't had much time to blog about my baking attempts - but I just wanted to share this year's Figolli.

These are traditional Maltese cakes for Easter - a really soft biscuit dough, stuffed with a spicy almond paste, made in a variety of shapes and covered with lots of icing and a chocolate egg.

They came out beautifully this year - though my flat was literally covered with icing sugar for the weekend. I'll cut and paste the recipe later on, but they're much more simple to make than they look. And delicious!
