How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper, buttered wax paper, or silpat.
  • Prepare a pastry bag or cookie press with a 1/2-inch plain tube.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the egg yolks, 1/3 cup of sugar, and vanilla.
  • Whisk on medium speed until very light and lemon-colored, about 5 minutes.
  • In another bowl, whisk the egg whites with the salt until they hold a soft peak.
  • Increase the mixer speed to high and whisk in the remaining sugar.
  • The egg whites should now have a soft, shiny peak.
  • Remove from the mixer.
  • Gently fold in the yolk mixture.
  • Sift the flour into the egg mixture.
  • Gently fold in the flour, making sure that the flour is evenly distributed.
  • Fill the pastry bag with some of the batter.
  • Pipe 3-1/2 inch strips about 1-1/2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.
  • Sprinkle with granulated sugar (optional)
  • Bake the ladyfingers for about 15 minutes until golden and firm to the touch.
  • Remove them, still on the paper, to a wire rack to cool.
  • When completely cool, remove them from the paper and enjoy
