Lady Fingers Recipe

YIELD: Yield: Enough Lady fingers to make the best tiramisu recipe. (Yes, shameless self promotion.)


* 5 egg whites

* 4 egg yolks

* 2/3 cup sugar

* 1 dash vanilla

* 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

* 1 cup all-purpose flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Separate eggs into two separate bowls .
  3. Beat egg whites on high speed until foamy.
  4. Add two tablespoons of the 2/3 cup of sugar to the egg whites.
  5. Continue to beat until stiff peaks form, and set aside.
  6. In a separate bowl, add vanilla and remainder of the sugar to the egg yolks and beat.
  7. Set it aside.
  8. Sift together the flour and baking powder.
  9. Fold half of the egg whites into the yolks. Do it real gently.
  10. Fold the flour mixture into the yolks.
  11. Fold the rest of the egg whites into the yolks.
  12. Put the batter into a pastry bag. ( I use a a ziploc bag with the corner snipped off.)
  13. Pipe the batter onto a greased cookie sheet.

NOTE: Traditionally they are shaped like two lady sized fingers. But they are going to be layered and covered. It really doesn’t matter.

* Bake for about 6 minutes . Stay close because all you want is the edges to turn brown.
