Anna Sultana's Ladyfingers Cookies

Before I go any further, I must say Maltese are NOT cannibals.
I don't know where our recipes got their names.
I know that a few weeks ago a posted Ma's Death Man's Bones recipe.
A simple, light cookie.
Not a bit of bone in sight.
And wasn't that a nice recipe for All Souls' Day?

Okay... this week I'm posting Ma's recipe for Ladyfingers.
You've most likely had them before.
Either as is or as an ingredient in Tiramisu.
A nice simple cookie that dunks well.


Makes about 3 dozen cookies

In a large bowl sift together
2 Cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 350ยบ
Generously grease and flour 3 baking sheets

In a large mixer bowl beat until cream colored
1 Cup sugar
4 large eggs
1 Tablespoon almond extract
Add the sifted dry ingredients
Mix until blended.
The dough will be soft.  Don't add more flour.

Allowing for shaping, drop the batter by spoonfuls onto the cookie sheets.
Also allow for spreading.
Shape the mounds into 'fingers' 3 inches long and 1 inch wide.
Bake 10 minutes or until lightly brown.
Let cool on a rack.

Before serving, if you want, dust them with
Confectioners' sugar
