Figolli are delicious almond based biscuits from Malta traditionally eaten on Easter Sunday. Usually the Figolli is made using giant cookie cutter shapes, decorated with royal icing and topped with an Easter Egg in the centre of the cookie.
This Easter dessert recipe for Figolli (Maltese Easter Biscuits) is brought to you by Faye Purdon from Faye’s Delights, so you know the recipe will be much healthier, sugar free and using wholefood ingredients.
Tip: If you find giant cookie cutter shapes hard to source, smaller cookie cutter shapes work fine as long as they don’t have pointed, narrow shapes as these are difficult to fill. Try shapes like circles, eggs, cars, butterflies and bunnies for your Maltese easter biscuits (Figolli).
Mix all ingredients well and set aside
Traditionally, Figolli are decorated with royal icing. Often half an easter egg is placed in the centre of the cookie and then it is decorated with icing.
Seeing as these are sugar free Figolli, Faye decorates hers with good quality dark chocolate, natural sprinkles (Hopper brand) and dried flowers. But let your imagination run wild and have fun!
