Savoiardi are the Italian version of ladyfingers or boudoir biscuits, made with a light vanilla sponge cake batter. Sweet and delicious, savoiardi are crispy biscuits, favourite among younger kids.
Usually savoiardi are used as a base or lining for other desserts like tiramisu and puddings. But even served by themselves, they make an excellent companion to English tea.
You can make them in huge batches and store them in an air tight box for up to two weeks, and enjoy them with your tea or use them to make a sweeter dessert.
These biscuits are very low calorie and can curb sweet cravings. They can be eaten in small quantities without any danger of weight gain or adverse effects on health.
