Agnellini Pasquale at Court Street Pastry
Marzipan Easter Lambs and assorted fruit from Monteleone's
The Agnellini Pasquale: A Sicilian Easter Tradition
Like clockwork, marzipan lambs make an appearance in the weeks leading up to Easter at both Court Pastry shop at 298 Court Street and Monteleone's at 355 Court Street. No exception this year. The molded almond paste creatures have hand-painted faces, rest on a bed of fake green grass and are surrounded by a few chocolate eggs and candy.
It wouldn't be Easter without such a centerpiece for many Italian families here in Carroll Gardens.
Can anyone give us more information or tell us stories about these marzipan lambs? Would love to know more.
