Homemade Savoiardi Recipe . Italian Ladyfingers Biscuit for Tiramisu

I have never tasted tiramisu so far. But it is one desert which i want to try so badly because it has been requested by lots of my viewers, plus i have heard that it is one of the best tasting desert in the world. I have been putting it on hold because, i want to make tiramisu, i have to make everything from scratch. Because i could never get all those ladyfinger and mascarpone cheese here in my place. 

Since valentine's day is around the corner, and i wanted to make a special post for that day. So i thought of giving this a shot. First i made ladyfingers biscuits and mascarpone cheese the day before and assembled tiramisu the next day. I also made two version of it, a basic tiramisu cake and a tiramisu trifle. I put the entire thing in fridge to set overnight and the next day i tasted it, it was like perfect and i fell in love with it instantly. So here is my first post for tiramisu, the biscuit for its base..Stay tuned for the tiramisu cake.


I thought the cookies will be crispy and hard, but it was soft, more like a cake. When i made tiramisu using this, i felt these cookies absorbed the coffee liquid perfectly and the end result of the tiramisu turned out to be so good. And also the cookies were little on the flatter side because i didn't use the speciality pan which i used to make this. Overall this is a great recipe to make a perfect tiramisu.
