“Savoiardi, also known as lady fingers, is a light Italian cookie. It can be eaten plain, with coffee or used in Tiramisu. My cousin owns an Italian bakery, and this is her recipe!”

Original recipe yields 12 cookies



  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease and flour a baking sheet.
  2. In a medium bowl, whip egg yolks and 3/8 cup of white sugar until thick and pale. Whisk in flour and salt just until smooth. Stir in vanilla. In a separate glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites until they are able to hold firm peaks. Fold egg whites into the egg yolk mixture until fully incorporated.
  3. Drop the batter by tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet, and shape into 3 inch long strips. Stir together the remaining white sugar and confectioners' sugar, and sprinkle half of the mixture over the tops of the strips. Let stand for 10 minutes, then sprinkle the remaining sugar mixture over them, and let stand for 5 more minutes.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. Cool on a wire rack.

I have now tried this recipe three times. I have been trying to duplicate the Savoiardi I grew up with in New York. The cookies are too spongy and the crispy outer crust that I remember is just not the same. Also, the flavor is almost, but not quite, as I remember. The ones I grew up with had a distinct almond flavor to them.



I was disappointed in this recipe. It didn't taste like the Savoiardi cookies from an Italian bakery and was closer to a regular ladyfinger recipe but more crisp.



I didn't like this recipe at all. the cookies were burnt even after I baked them for the minimum time specified. they were very flat too, even though I piped them on as thick as was told. I ended up going on a search through grocery store to find lady fingers for a tiramisu that I was making for a potluck
