Homemade eggless Tiramisu Ladyfingers Biscuit (Savoiardi) recipe

I want to make Tiramisu, Italian cheese cake at home but the main ingredients for this recipe are ladyfinger, biscuits, and Mascarpone Cheese. Both of them weren’t available in the grocery store. So I’ve decided to make lady finger biscuit at home and I will use substitute to make mascarpone cheese as well.


Ingredients for Ladyfinger Biscuits:

1) 1 cup all purpose flour (Maida)

2) ½ cup sugar

3)  ½ cup unsalted butter (1 rectangle 8 oz cube out of 4)

4)  ½ tsp salt (to your taste)

5) ¼ tsp Baking soda

6) Optional: ½ tsp cardamom powder (elaichi) and saffron strands soaked in 2 tbsp of warm milk

Mehtod to make Ladyfinger biscuits:

  2. Keep dough in a Ziploc bag for ½ an hour.
  3. Meanwhile preheat the oven at 350 Degrees F
  4. Make small size of balls and give cylindrical/rectangle shape with your palm as shown in the image and put it in a greased backing tray. Keep distance between cylindrical biscuits because they will be raised upon the baking.
  5. Now place cookie tray in an oven for 25 minutes.
  6. Let it cool down on a rack, in a picture, you can see I’ve used my conventional oven rack.
  7. Store in an airtight container and use while making Tiramisu cake or eat with tea/coffee.
