Homemade ladyfingers—worth it?

esiegferth | Apr 15, 201904:10 PM     6

Hey all!

I'm planning on a tiramisu-inspired trifle (lighter whipped cream/mascarpone mixture, adding raspberries galore). I'm trying to decide if homemade ladyfingers will be worth the effort. I'm usually team from-scratch, but:

The ladyfinger recipe on Serious Eats includes heating the eggs over steam to a certain temperature, but I don't have a thermometer. KAF's recipe doesn't do that, but seems to rely on pastry flour, which I'd rather not buy right now.

If it's worth it, does anybody have a tried-and-true recipe?

Any general suggestions for my trifle in general would be loved, too! Trying to make it lighter and more springtime-y.
