* 5 large eggs, separated, at room temperature 30 minutes
* 2/3 cup sugar, divided
* 7/8 cup all-purpose flour
* Confectioners sugar for dusting

Lady Fingers Recipe INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 350°F with rack in middle.

Beat yolks with an electric mixer at medium speed until pale yellow, then gradually beat in all but 1 1/2 tablespoons of sugar.

Beat at medium-high speed until pale yellow, tripled in volume, and thick enough to form a ribbon that takes 5 seconds to dissolve when beater is lifted, 5 to 7 minutes. Sprinkle flour over mixture and stir until just combined (batter will be very stiff).

Beat egg whites with cleaned beaters until they just hold soft peaks.

Add remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar in a slow stream, then beat until whites hold stiff peaks.

Stir one third of whites into yolk mixture to lighten, then fold in remaining whites gently but thoroughly. Spoon batter into pastry bag.

Line a large baking sheet with parchment, piping a dab of batter under each corner to secure. Pipe 2 rows of (3 1/2-inch-long) ladyfingers (12 to 16 per row) onto sheet, piping them so they almost touch. Dust with confectioners sugar.

Bake until pale golden, dry, and soft but springy to the touch, 14 to 16 minutes. Cool completely on baking sheet..and the lady finger recipe is ready..enjoy it !

Savoiardi Lady Finger Recipe


Savoiardi are a Piemontese specialty that resemble lady fingers, though they're about twice as thick. In addition to being eaten as is, they figure prominently in many desserts, including puddings and tiramisu.

Lady Finger Recipe Ingredients:

* 1/2 cup less 2 tablespoons potato starch
* 1 cup cake flour
* 4 eggs, separated
* 2/3 cup sugar
* 1 tablespoon margarine
* Powdered sugar

Lady Finger Recipe INSTRUCTIONS
Preheat your oven to 375 F (185 C).

Sift a cup of the flour with the potato starch.

Grease a sheet of paper with the margarine and use it to line a cookie sheet, then dust the sheet with the remaining flour and discard what doesn't stick.

Whip the whites until stiff and incorporate half a cup of the sugar, then beat the yolks in another bowl with the remaining sugar. Fold the yolks into the whites, and then fold in the flour gradually with the aid of the sifter. Pour the batter into a pastry bag and pour it out into three inch strips on the cookie sheet, separating them by about an inch. Let the batter sit for one or two minutes, dust the cookies with powdered sugar, and bake them for about ten minutes. They should puff up, brown lightly, and be soft. Leave them on the sheet for five minutes after removing it from the oven, then put them on a rack. Put them in a tightly sealed container when they have cooled; they will be better the next day and will keep for a few weeks. The lady fingers recipe is ready ! Enjoy it !
