• Our Easter cakes

Data pubblicazione: 08 Apr 2020 - Categoria: recipes

These preparations together with the tarts, the “focaccia” with lard, “il pesce al cioccolato” (soft roll filled with chocolate cream) and other delicacies were prepared in our house before Easter.

What fantastic memories and what unique and unrepeatable flavors!


for biscuits

  • 350 grams flour 00
  • 2 eggs
  • 80 grams butter
  • 100 grams sugar
  • A glass of milk 50 cl
  • 1/2 packet of baking powder

for the syrup

  • 50 cl water
  • 3 spoons sugar
  • 50 cl alchermes
  • For the greedier: Nutella

Put the cold butter in the flour together with the sugar and the baking powder, knead with a fork, until a sand forms.

Add the eggs and milk and form a ball, cover it with plastic wrap, and let it rest 1/2 hour in the refrigerator.

Meanwhile, heat the water with the sugar until it dissolves, add the alchermes and put everything in a bowl. In another bowl put the sugar.

Take the biscuits dough and form little balls.

Bake at 180° for about 20 minutes.

When the balls are cooked, allow them to cool.

With a teaspoon, dig the bottom of the biscuits and fill them with Nutella (but they are also good with jam), then match them.

Dip them in our syrup and finally pass them in sugar.

The kids go crazy for them!
