There's nothing like a homemade cookie or candy. Each bite is like a kiss from home!



     You should always have some of these ladyfinger cookies on hand because they are not only tasty cookies, but they are included in many dessert recipes as a base for trifles and puddings.

6 separated eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Dash of salt                                                                                                                                       2/3 cup sifted flour
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar

     Heat oven to 300. Grease and flour or spray two baking sheets. Whisk egg yolks till thick. Beat in sugar slowly and add vanilla. Combine egg whites with the salt and beat till it peaks. Add a quarter of the egg whites and a quarter of the flour to the yolk mixture. Fold gently. Do this again and again till all the flour and whites are in.

     Lay in strips using a pastry or plastic bag with the corner snipped. Lay 1 inch apart on the baking sheets. Sift powdered sugar over cookies till well covered. Tip pan and gently shake to remove the excess powdered sugar. Bake for about 20 minutes on top rack. Cool on the same sheets for a couple minutes, then transfer sheets to wire rack.
