How to make it

  • Begin by preparing the filling:
  • Grind the figs, citrus zest and almonds together, then put them in a bowl and add to them the raisins, chocolate, coffee and honey. Mix well and let rest, covered.
  • Soften the lard by kneading a little hot water into it and combine it with the flour to obtain a dough, working in the sugar and vanilla too.
  • Roll out the dough and cut it into pieces large enough to be folded over balls of filling.
  • Once the filling is in the dough, take a sharp knife and trace zigzag geometric patterns in the dough, so that when the cookies bake the dough will pull back, revealing the filling below.
  • As soon as they are done, brush them with lightly beaten egg yolk and sprinkle them with diavulicchi, to heighten the chromatic effect.
  • Baking temperature of 360-degrees F (180-degrees C), bake them until light golden.
  • NOTE: the cooking time listed here is an ESTIMATE!!! Watch them carefully.
