  • Beat eggs with sugar until pale, creamy and super fluffy texture.
  • Mix together flour, cornstarch and vanilla powder.
  • Fold it into the eggs, a couple of tablespoons at a time. Don’t add more until the previous hasn’t been completely combined. Whisk in slowly and carefully trying not to “deflate” the batter.
  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Fill a pastry bag with the batter. Use a fine round tip. Cookies should come out pretty thin and delicate, lady fingers after all :)
  • Pipe cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Keep cookie shape as of a point finger. Leave enough space between the cookies as they’ll slightly “melt” after they settle on the baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle lightly with sugar. Bake in the preheated to 350F oven for 12-15 minutes or until lightly brown on the edges.
  • Repeat the process with the remaining dough.
