They comes from Italy they are called Lady Fingers but these long finger- or oval-shaped cookies are also known around the world as Boudoir biscuits, sponge biscuits, sponge fingers, Naples biscuits, Savoy biscuits. Lady fingers (Savoiardi) are specialty biscuits from Piemontese region in Italy. The shape of these little pastries resembles ladies fingers, although they are not as thin. Ladyfinger cookies made from sponge cake batter, which are served with puddings and ice cream. Ladyfinger cookies can be made at home or you can buy them.

And as Iv learned there are different types of ladyfinger cookies. Like vanilla, bananas, orange rum, strawberries, coffee and more. Directions:

To make lady fingers, beat eggs and granulated sugar in medium-size bowl until thick and lemon-colored, add the salt, and set the bowl in a pan of hot water. Beat the eggs with an egg beater till light. Add the sugar, a little at a time, and beat till the batter is as stiff as it can be made. Put the batter in a pastry bag which has been wet on the inside with cold water. If a pastry bag is not at hand, the batter may be dropped onto the pan with a spoon. Oil a pan, sprinkle it lightly with flour, and with the bag put the batter onto the pan in the form of lady fingers or round cookies. Cocoanut or chopped nuts or caraway seed may be sprinkled over the cookies, or a raisin may be put in the center of each, just before they are baked Ingredients: 2 cups whipping or heavy cream 1/2 cup sugar 4 tablespoons sugar 1 cup strong coffee or espresso 3 tablespoons of cr?me de cocoa, cognac, or brandy (can substitute strong coffee or espresso) 8 ounces of mascarpone cheese 1/8 cup of cocoa powder 20 lady fingers or sponge cake serving dish.
