Figolli is the most important Maltese Easter dessert. They have the texture of a shortbread cookie and are cut into shapes representing fertility. Before baking to a golden brown, a homemade almond paste is sandwiched between two of the cut out shapes. Traditionally, these cookies were enjoyed by children, post Lent, not only by eating them but also by helping mum bake them.
