Ingredients:

  • 3 large eggs, separated
  • 1/2 cup (100 g) sugar, divided
  • A pinch of salt
  • 2/3 cup (85 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup (20 g) cornstarch
  • Powdered sugar for sprinkling

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the dry ingredients:
    • Sift the flour and cornstarch together into a bowl and set aside.
  2. Beat the egg whites:
    • In a clean bowl, add a pinch of salt to the egg whites. Start whisking, and as soon as they start to foam, gradually add half of the sugar. Continue whipping until stiff peaks form.
  3. Whisk the egg yolks:
    • In another bowl, whisk the egg yolks with the remaining sugar until white and thickened, about 4 minutes.
  4. Combine:
    • Gently sift half of the dry ingredients over the whipped egg whites and gently incorporate them. Add the whipped yolks, then the rest of the dry ingredients, folding gently until well combined. Be sure to keep as much air in the mixture as possible.
  5. Pour the dough:
    • Transfer the dough to a piping bag fitted with a 1.5cm nozzle. Spread the dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper into strips about 8 cm long.
  6. Cook:
    • Sprinkle the dough generously with powdered sugar. Bake in preheated 356°F (180°C) oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or until lightly browned and firm.
  7. Cool:
    • Let the ladyfingers cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before carefully removing them to cool completely on a wire rack.
