      Good recipe!! I used my copper bowl for the egg whites and was pleased with how easy this dough came together! I started smelling the cookies at about 6 minutes and so I took them out and they were lightly browned. I baked my next batch for 5 minutes and they came out perfectly! You definitely need a pastry bag and tip for this because the mix is very gooey and difficult to handle any other way. The cookies turn out light, airy, crisp, and delicious!! Thanks for the recipe!

      I'm in culinary school and have made ladyfingers in class using complicated, long recipes that didn't turn out as well as these did.

      I am probably doing something wrong with the whites in the recipe that my ladyfingers wouldn't rise at all. I made this recipe 3 times now, but with the same result. However, I am giving it five stars for the ease of this recipe and for the delicious taste. My mom devoured these things even though they didn't rise for me. I definitely will be making these very often, if not as ladyfingers just as regular cookies to munch on ;) Thanks Steve!
