Alessi Savoiardi, Lady Fingers, 7-Ounce Packages (Pack of 12)
Savoiadi, Commonly known as Lady Fingers, are delightful and delicately light cookies from Italy that have been enjoyed by Italians for generations. Eaten as a snack alongside a glass of milk, children love their simple goodness. Adults too, enjoy nibbling on them between sips of espresso or cappuccino. The Italians have invented wondrous desserts using them in creations like "Tiramisu". Tiramisu is an Italian delight that has of late become a most fashionable dessert. It's origins have been traced back to Siena where it had been called "Zuppa Del Duca" or "The Duke's Soup". The dessert became very popular in Florence in the nineteenth century where the English people, who lived in the town renamed it "Zuppa Inglese" or "English Soup". The dessert has several variations and has always enjoyed great popularity over the years regardless of the name. Made with mascarpone cheese, delicate Lady Fingers and laced with strong espresso coffee, "Tiramisu" literally translates to "Pick me up" which refers to the inevitable energizing boost this dessert will provide.
