    Wen in Sacramento, CA's Note:

    This is a basic recipe for Italian ladyfingers, the base of many desserts. I searched and searched but could never find these in the store, so I developed my own recipe and they turned out great. These are also nice to dunk in tea or coffee. Not to sweet. Prep can be a little messy, but is worth it. Enjoy!

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 24

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Separate eggs into two separate bowls, making sure not to get ANY yolk into the bowls containing the whites.
    2. 2
      Beat egg whites on high speed until foamy.
    3. 3
      Add two tablespoons of the 2/3 cup of sugar to the egg whites and continue to beat until stiff peaks form, and set aside.
    4. 4
      In a separate bowl, Add vanilla and the rest of the sugar to the egg yolks and beat until pale yellow, set aside.
    5. 5
      Sift together the flour and baking powder together (I didn't want to dirty another bowl so I sifted onto a piece of waxed paper).
    6. 6
      Gently fold half of the egg whites into the yolks.
    7. 7
      Fold the flour mixture into the yolks.
    8. 8
      Fold the rest of the egg whites into the yolks.
    9. 9
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    10. 10
      Load batter into a pastry bag with a wide tip, or a ziploc bag with the corner snipped off.
    11. 11
      Pipe onto a greased cookie sheet in any shape you'd like (traditionally, they are shaped like fingers, about as wide as your pointer and middle finger put together).
    12. 12
      Bake for 6 minutes, or until edges are just golden brown.

      Great recipe! Instructions were easy to follow and the ladyfingers turned out beautifully. Mine did need to bake about 11-12 minutes though to get just lightly brown at edges and bottom. The recipe yielded 52 ladyfingers, each about 1.5" wide by 3.25" long. The only change I made to the recipe was I used medium eggs, so used 5 yolks and 7 whites.

      A dash of vanilla was a bit confusing, i think that should be clarified, other than my guessing of the amount of vanilla, they came out great(:
