I use this recipe and my Italian Sponge Cookie Recipe for Tiramisu or any great dessert to substitute packaged lady fingers. These cookies are great along with some coffee or tea.

How to Make Italian Lady Fingers SAVOIARDI

Step-by-Step

  • 1Separate eggs into two separate bowls.
  • 2Beat egg whites on high speed until foamy.
  • 3Add two tablespoons of the 2/3 cup of sugar to the egg whites. Continue to beat until stiff peaks form, and set aside.
  • 4In a separate bowl, add vanilla and remainder of the sugar to the egg yolks and beat. Set aside
  • 5Sift together the flour and baking powder. Fold half of the egg whites into the yolks also adding zest if you'd like.. Do it real gently.
  • 6Fold the flour mixture into the yolks.
  • 7Fold the rest of the egg whites into the yolks.
  • 8Put the batter into a pastry bag. ( I use a a ziploc bag with the corner snipped off.)
  • 9Pipe the batter onto parchment paper lined cookie sheets.
  • 10Dust the piped dough with powdered sugar. (optional)
  • 11Bake for about 6 minutes. Stay close because all you want is the edges to turn lightly brown.
  • 12Dust with additional powdered sugar if you'd like.
