Authentic Italian Cooking
Desserts using ladyfingers (savoiardi)
Ladyfingers, in Italian savoiardi, are delicate biscuits that I always suggest to enjoy together with a cup of chocolate or tea if homemade. If you prefer to use them for other desserts (you can see some examples below), you should buy them already made ;)
Savoiardi: biscuits from north to south in Italy
What's the origin of these biscuits? Piedmont, for sure. But Savoy family dominated a lot regions in Italy in the past and so every part of their kingdom inherited the recipe, Sicily included!
They are used in the Italian cuisine very much for fantastic desserts, some of them famous all over the world. Think about tiramisu, for example.
Take a look at the list below!

This is a recent dessert in the Italian cuisine. It was born a few decades ago in Veneto, near Venice. But as all the very good things, it has toured the world in a short time ;))
