Figolli April 18, 2011

Posted by sunflower71 in about me, activities for children, Food.

Gourmet Worrier is the best food (and more) blog there is in my modest opinion.  Now the lady behind it had the great idea to create the “World Figolli Day“.  Joining the group was easy….sticking to the promise less so.  With the 3 princesses wanting to participate in everything, cooking with the three of them is not so simple any more.  But over the last couple of days we managed to make the dough and filling and finally compile the figolli, bake them and decorate them.  It’s not a task for the faint hearted.  But with my man’s full support we have just managed to finish all the batch.  For practicality’s sake, this year we stayed with the heart-shaped figolli.  The recipe is from this guy.  I think it’s one of the best recipes around especially the filling goes out till the edges.  Try it …. you might get hooked.

This year's batch

Claudia I’m so glad you decided to jump on the figolli day bandwagon! If it’s any consolation, it gets easier as the years go by and you and your girls will get more adventurous and daring with your shapes!

Have a wonderful Easter!

Thanks for visiting. I’m sure it will get easier as they grow older…at least that’s what I hope 😉 With regards to the shapes… we’ll see…i’m not that creative….At least it’s not the lambs…that I hate as they never turn out looking as lambs lol
