"Savoiardi, also known as lady fingers, is a light Italian cookie. It can be eaten plain, with coffee or used in Tiramisu. My cousin owns an Italian bakery, and this is her recipe!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I have now tried this recipe three times. I have been trying to duplicate the Savoiardi I grew up with in New York. The cookies are too spongy and the crispy outer crust that I remember is just not the same. Also, the flavor is almost, but not quite, as I remember. The ones I grew up with had a distinct almond flavor to them.
I was disappointed in this recipe. It didn't taste like the Savoiardi cookies from an Italian bakery and was closer to a regular ladyfinger recipe but more crisp.
I didn't like this recipe at all. the cookies were burnt even after I baked them for the minimum time specified. they were very flat too, even though I piped them on as thick as was told. I ended up going on a search through grocery store to find lady fingers for a tiramisu that I was making for a potluck
