  • 4 eggs separated
  • 2 Tablespoons + 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder


  • Preheat oven to 400 F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Fit large pastry bag with a plain 1/2 inch round tube. If you don't have one, just cut off the end of a Ziploc bag.
  • Place egg whites in a bowl and beat on high until soft peaks start to form.
  • Slowly add 2 tablespoons of the sugar and continue beating until stiff and glossy.
  • In another bowl, beat egg yolks and remaining sugar.
  • Whip until thick and very pale in color.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together flour and baking powder.
  • Fold half the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture.
  • Fold in flour, and then add the remaining egg whites.
  • Transfer mixture to the pastry bag (or Ziploc bag) and pipe strips that look like ladyfingers onto the prepared baking sheet (make them about 6 inches long).
  • Bake for 8 minutes.
