Ladyfingers are thin “fingers” of sponge cake that are the building blocks of many other types of recipes. Though the cookies can be eaten on their own, they’re usually passed over until incorporated into a completed dessert, such as a tiramisu. While storebought ladyfingers may not be worthy of snacking, I’m sharing a recipe on the Craftsy blog (it’s free!!) for my Homemade Ladyfingers, which are delicious enough to pair with your coffee or tea AND make a fantastic tiramisu, Charlotte or trifle. The Ladyfingers start with a sponge cake batter that is piped into the cookie’s signature shape on a baking sheet. The batter is easy to handle and while piping batter may seem difficult at first, the process actually goes very quickly. With this recipe you can make soft ladyfingers or crispier ones, simply by extending the baking time. I like mine somewhere in the middle, as crispier cookies can be easier to work with when building a tiramisu, but softer ones tend to have a little more flavor. No matter how you bake them, you can’t go wrong with this recipe and you’ll see a big improvement in the flavor of your desserts that use ladyfingers by using homemade!!
