Then I was invited to a Schar press luncheon where a lovely tiramisu made from Schar ladyfingers was the dessert and a package of of included in the goodie bag.
I immediately started planning to make a tiramisu of my own. Weeks passed and I never got around to it. Then I was given another package of ladyfingers by my niece. Plans grew to include a trifle with lemon curd and raspberries.
During the hectic between many summer and fall trips, when I was not up to attacking the preparation of complex meal finales, I consumed both boxes quickly. Simply as cookie snacks. Which they are perfect for, too. They're light, beautifully made, not overpowering in the vanilla flavoring area and ideal when you need something sweet but not filling.
Although having made my way through two boxes in two weeks, I suppose I have to admit I was occasionally...full. But happy.
