I need this Italian cookie recipe

little bit | | Aug 9, 2005 03:00 PM


I am looking for a cookie recipe--haven't had much luck getting info on it. The original bakers in my neighborhood have closed the store and retired. Such a great cookie and a shame to lose.

The sandwich cookie I'm researching is sold in the bakeries here in the New York area, but I'm looking to create a variation of this somewhat dry cookie.

We in Brooklyn call this a "ladyfinger", but it is not saviordi. It is a butter-based, jelly-filled sandwich cookie. It is shaped like the traditional ladyfinger, and filled with apricot or raspberry jelly, sometimes one end of the cookie is dipped in chocolate or it can be sprinkled with powdered sugar.

The ingredients I think are in it are eggs, butter, flour, vanilla, possibly some almond paste and baking powder.

This is a soft, chewy cookie; not crumbly like a shortbread. It is 2-3" long, piped out of a bag most likely with a star tip, and baked to a golden color.

Thanks to all
