How to Make Ladyfingers
My recipe for Homemade Ladyfinger cookies may seem complex but can be broken down into three simple parts:
- The first part consists of beating egg yolks and sugar into a light and fluffy consistency, a feature that adds richness to your cookies.
- The second part of making Homemade Ladyfingers is to beat your egg whites and sugar into stiff and shiny peaks that will be folded into your yolk mixture from Part 1. Beating your egg whites with sugar will add tons of body and texture to your mixture and give it a light, cake-like texture.
- Finally, sift your flour and a pinch of salt into your mixture and gently fold so that your batter can be transformed into a shapely and structured cookie.
Desserts that Use Ladyfingers
I always have ladyfingers on hand! I love to use the leftovers for dishes like my 10 Minute Tiramisu and 10 Minute Berry Tiramisu, and highly encourage you to do the same! Knowing how to make lady fingers is such an important part of any bakers repertoire. I can’t wait for you Bold Bakers to master this versatile cookie!
Can Ladyfingers Be Egg Free?
I’m glad you asked! Of course they can — but it isn’t as easy as substituting the eggs for something else. It’s a whole different recipe. Get the recipe for Egg-Free Ladyfingers.
