Ladyfingers can be found in the bakery section of the grocery store. The light, sponge-like cookies are used to make recipes like tiramisu and semifreddo.
Ladyfingers are also know as sponge biscuits or sponge fingers. The cookies are made from sponge cake batter, in which the sugar and egg yolks are beaten together until thick. Beaten egg whites, vanilla extract and flour are then folded into the mixture. Ladyfingers are dusted with sugar before baking to give them a sweet, crunchy crust. In addition to being used to make semifreddo and tiramisu, ladyfingers can also be eaten with ice cream.
