Morning everyone!!! Actually I should say good night..... I'm here in Japan the end of another long trip...can't wait to go home tomorrow! Little by little this blog is going back to life!
This recipe is originally from mum makes them often on carnival time...I love them...

  • 300g almond flour
  • 270g sugar
  • 60g water
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • Orange blossom water
  • 250g flour
  • 25g lard
  • A pinch of salt
  • Luke warm water
  • A drop of marsala wine
  • 300g icing sugar
  • 50/60g water
  • Orange blossom water

Start by preparing the filling: In a small saucepan bring the water to the boil with the grated lemon zest. Pour the sugar and let dissolve until you have a smooth syrup. Add the almonds and orange blossom water. Stir continuously with a wooden spoon until thick and smooth.In a bowl mix the flour, pinch of salt and water. Mix well then add the lard. Knead dough until smooth and soft. Roll out the dough to a very thin sheet (about 2mm) and cut into large stripes about 8cm high. Place a knob of filling in the middle of the pastry and cover with another sheet of pastry. Form the ravioli and place them in a baking tray. Bake at 170ÂșC for just a few minutes. Prepare the icing by mixing the icing sugar with the water and orange blossom water. It should be smooth and thick. Decorate the ravioli with the icing and sugared confetti.
