"This recipe turned out perfectly. I could not find Lady Fingers at my supermarket and was very pleased to find this recipe. I followed the recipe exactly as written. I used the them in the Tiramisu Recipe. #84612. This dessert turned out fantastic. The lady fingers were soft and spongy and soaked in the yummy coffee liquid while still holding their shape. It's a keeper! Thanks Sam"
"I used this recipe to make the Lady Fingers for my Chocolate/Cherry Trifle dessert tonight. I probably could have whipped my egg whites a bit stiffer, but after reading one review was a bit fearful of doing that, next time I will definately whip them a bit stiffer. I have got to thank you for this lovely, and tasty recipe, that is so very very handy. I have to tell you how hard it is to find these in the store most times and this recipe is now going to be a regular around here. The Kitchen Store in town sells the forms for Lady Fingers and I think it is well worth going to pick that up now. Thank you so very much for this great recipe. Made for Please Review My Recipe Event."
"I am always wanting to make various desserts that call for Lady Fingers and can never seem to find them commercially. Now I can make my own! These were very easy and quick to make. Turned out light and flavorful. I made a change in flavor by adding lemon extract instead of almond, to go with a dessert I am going to use them in. I did make mine a little wider than store-bought kind, but will work great for the dessert."
"I'm so bummed that I didn't look at all of 2Bleu's photos before making these. Now I see what I did wrong. When I read 'very stiff', I overdid it, and my egg whites were too stiff and foamy and things did not fold together properly. Despite the wrong texture, I can tell you that they still taste very good, but I don't want to put stars on this until I try it again and get better results myself. Thanks for posting, and thanks 2Bleu, for the great instructional photos, even though I didn't see them all right away. (I stopped when I saw that delicious looking strawberry mousse sandwich!) Made for PRMR."
"I reduced the recipe down to 8 servings. This recipe is easier than one might imagine Lady Fingers to be. 2 bowls, 10 minutes! :) Light like an angel, and fluffy like the clouds, I served this in bowls with some frozen Recipe #302977 for a strawberry shortcake and also made some strawberry mousse sandwiches. These Lady fingers do 'stick' to your fingers (and each other), so they are best eaten with a spoon, but for a delicious bit of (low-calorie and low-fat) heaven on earth, these are a must try! Outstanding Sam, thanks for a keeper recipe!"
