Italian Easter Egg Basket (Pupa Cu L'ova)
55 mins (prep 35, cooking 20)
6 ingredients
5-6 servings
This is a traditional treat brought over from Italy which is made for the celebration of Easter. I have fond memories of my mother making this each year. I don't know how to describe this tasty treat. It's not a cake nor is it a cookie. It's somewhere in between. All I know is that I like it, it's delicious and I enjoy it very much Please feel free to alter this recipe in any way. For instance, some people prefer almond flavoring instead anise. Whatever suggestions or changes you make in either the quantities of ingredients or methods please let everyone know the results through the "Comments" section. I'm sure that any recipe can be improved upon.
