Crazy About Cookies by Krystina Castella : Cookbook Review

I was given the chance to review Crazy About Cookies: 300 Scrumptious Recipes for Every Occasion & Craving. Flipping through I found her recipe for Lady Fingers, and knew right then what I was going to make with them! My Birthday Tiramisu dessert!

 This was my first time ever using/making lady fingers, so I wasn't really sure about what I was doing or how they were suppose to turn out. HAHA, as you can see my first few batches didn't pipe out so well, then I forgot to powder sugar them before baking! Good thing I doubled her recipe, and the last few trays came out much better. Since I was using them in a dessert, I froze them until ready to use the next day, since I had read up on these, knowing that they'll stale quickly. Even though mine came out thin and they soaked up a lot of the coffee for my Tiramisu, they tasted great.
