Passover Ladyfingers


Home | Recipes | P
Desserts Passover

Ingredients:

  • 6 Egg yolks
  • 1/4 c Sugar
  • 4 Egg whites
  • 1/2 c Sugar
  • 1/2 c Sifted cake meal
  • 1/4 c Sifted potato starch
  • Superfine sugar

Directions:

In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg yolks with the 1/4 cup of sugar until light and creamy.
 
In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until foamy, then gradually add the 1/2 cup sugar beating well after each addition until stiff. Fold the egg whites into the yolk mixture.
 
On a piece of waxed paper sift the cake meal and the potato starch. Sprinkle the sifted cake meal and potato starch over the batter and fold in gently. Line a large cookie sheet with brown paper. Using a pastry bag fitted with a round tube, pipe the batter onto the paper to form finger shapes about 1" wide and 4" long. Dust with superfine sugar shaken through a small sieve.
 
Bake for 10-12 minutes in a preheated 375 oven. Using a wide spatula, loosen from the paper immediately. Makes about 24.
 
I would use these to make several desserts that require either regular ladyfingers or I would line a springform pan with these and fill it with your favorite mousse recipe. Or you could use them to serve with a fruit compote.
