More about Savorardi Cookies

Savorardi cookies, or Ladyfingers, are perfect for kids because they are soft enough, easy to hold, and don’t fall apart easily. They are used in many desserts from trifles to tiramisu…..

Ladyfingers are light and sweet sponge cakes roughly shaped like a large finger. They are a principal ingredient in many dessert recipes, such as trifles, charlottes, and tiramisu. They are typically soaked in a sugar syrup or liqueur, such as coffee for the tiramisu dessert. They are also commonly given to infants, being soft enough for teething mouths but easy to grasp and firm enough not to fall apart.
