Figolli (Maltese Almond-Filled Easter Cookies)

This is a traditional Maltese Easter treat. My family makes these every year, and often throughout the year because they are so tasty! For Easter, shapes include rabbits, birds, lambs, fish, etc. Usually the shapes are symbolic of spring, but are not limited to that. I've started making them in rectangles and decorate the top with a picture out of icing.
