This recipe is for the ladies at the house A Chef of Your Own will be cooking at tonight. I am making Tiramisu for dessert tonight, here is the recipe. You can buy the ladyfingers or I just make them in sheets to make this just a little easier.


1/2 up flour

3 large egg yolks

2 Tbls sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla

3 large egg whites

1/8 tsp cream of tartar

3 Tbls sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a shallow pan with parchment and spray with “Pam”

Combine yolks,  2 Tbls sugar and vanilla and whip until pale yellow and thick.

Sift flour into bowl and fold in gently with cutting through the mixture and scraping the bottom.

In a clean bowl, whip whites with cream of tartar to soft peaks. Add sugar and whip until stiff peaks form.

Fold the whites into the yolk mixture until just combined.

Pour onto pan and make sure to level the top. Bake 8-10 minutes until just browned and top springs back when touched.

Let cool.
