More than Tiramisù: how to use the Ladyfingers
Ladyfingers are used all over the world as the main ingredient for a Tiramisù , the creamy delicious Italian dessert. However, thanks to their simple taste and soft but not mushy consistence, they are the perfect solution for a number of quick and easy recipes.
Ladyfingers dipped in the Coffee
Ladyfingers can become the perfect pairing for a good coffee . The ideal would be a cup of a good Italian espresso, but also with an Americano or a cup of tea .
Ladyfingers with Jam or with Cocoa Spread
You can create a really quick dessert by spreading some of your favorite jam in one side of your ladyfingers and cover with another one, as if they were sandwich cookies.
The chocoaholic can instead go for a good quality chocolate spread like the Pariani Hazelnut and Cocoa Spread of the same box.
The extra touch? Add some fresh fruits or dip the biscuits in melted chocolate!
Ladyfingers and Ice-cream
Let's be honest. Nobody loves to cook when it's summertime.
A bowl of vanilla ice-cream with strawberries immediately become a sophisticated dessert if you add a couple of Ladyfingers. The perfect dessert for those hot summer days (or for after-dinner sweet cravings).

Growing up between cookies and dessert, Antonio and his sister decided to open their pastry shop.
They carefully select the finest natural ingredients and still use traditional recipes . The simple yet delightful recipe will surely surprise you!
