Easter in Malta would not be the same without feasting on a ‘figolla’. Sandra and Simone look forward to their annual tradition like many households all over the Maltese islands.
Malta celebrates the feast of St. Joseph every year on 19 March. With it people look forward to one particular one-off pastry. Busy Bee is one of Malta’s established pastry kitchens that have kept the tradition alive for years.
On Valentine’s we baked these muffins as a treat. Moist and wholesome, these muffins are perfect in the morning, yet indulging for afternoon tea.
Pretty tartlet with the Maltese Cross. Make your own shortcrust pastry and strawberry filling and be ready to be knighted.
Thanks to Ottolenghi for sharing this recipe. These cookies will not last long in your kitchen. Mysteriously they will disappear… but you will eventually find out why.
