These cookies are so tasty that you can eat them on their own!
- In a mixer, beat the egg whites into a meringue. When stiff peaks form, add the caster sugar and continue beating until stiff and glossy.
- Transfer meringue to a large bowl. Use the same mixing bowl, without washing it. Beat the egg yolks with the sugar, until the mixture turns white and has a creamy texture.
- Add a spoonful of the meringue to the mixture to make it fluffier.
- Add the yolk mixture to the meringue.
- Gently fold in with a spatula to combine the 2 mixtures. Add the flour (preferably sifted) and mix gently with the spatula.
- Put the mixture in a piping bag fitted with a piping tube 1 cm in diameter.
- Preheat the oven to 190* C (374* F) Fan.
- Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper or silpat silicone liners. Pipe mixture onto liner of choice, making cookies whose length is 5 cm and width is 1.5 cm. Make sure to leave enough space between the cookies since they will rise while baking. There is enough mixture to make 50-60 cookies.
- Before placing them in the oven, dust with caster sugar, twice. The first layer will create a crust, while the second layer will help us create that nice sugary look on our ladyfingers.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven. Let them cool in the baking sheets for 1-2 minutes so that they can harden a little before trying to remove them.
