Italian Savoiardi (Ladyfingers)

savoiardi
Savoiardi or Ladyfingers are delicious egg-based cookies. The secret to preparing them at their best is to gently handle the egg mixture so as not to break it, especially when incorporating the flour.
Savoiardi are really good for making a delicious Tiramisu or for a Charlotte cake.
