    Bayhill's Note:

    Posted for the ZWT-France. From "LaVarenne's Basic French Cookery" cookbook. Ladyfingers should be firm on the outside, soft inside, and only lightly browned.

    My Private Note



    Ladyfin ...

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350F degrees (175C degrees).
    2. 2
      Grease and flour a baking sheet.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, beat egg yolks with 1/4 cup of the granulated sugar and vanilla until pale and thick enough to leave a ribbon trail* (see below).
    4. 4
      In a medium bowl, whip egg whites until stiff peaks form (egg whites shouldn't be dry).
    5. 5
      Add remaining 1/4 cup granulated sugar. Beat 30 seconds longer to make a light meringue.
    6. 6
      Sift flour and salt over the egg yolk mixture. Add 1/4 of the meringue mixture and gently fold together. Fold in remaining meringue in 2 batches.
    7. 7
      Gently spoon batter into a pastry bag fitted with a 5/8-inch plain tube. Pipe uniform 3-1/2-inch Ladyfingers at least 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
    8. 8
      Bake 15 to 18 minutes, wedging oven door ajar with a spoon so Ladyfingers dry as they bake. Remove from oven. Cool slightly on baking sheet. Transfer to a rack to cool completely.
    9. 9
      *Ribbon trail: When a whisk or beater is lifted, the batter falls slowly in a thick trail which does not sink immediately into the batter but remains on top for a few seconds.

      These were good. I liked them because they weren't too sweet. They were easy to make. I will be making these again.
