Bonomi Ladyfinger Cookies
An Italian tradition, Ladyfingers are light and sweet sponge cakes shaped like a large finger. Their texture comes from the classic preparation, oven baked to perfection, unchanged for generations. Their various uses are regional: the French call them biscuits and sandwich them together with nougat; the Italians, the originators, call them savoiardi and use these delicate cakes most commonly in Tiramisu. This is easily made by soaking the sponge cakes in coffee, then layering them with mascarpone filling – a true Italian treat!
