Become an expert in making Savoiardi cookies, the light biscuits integral to Tiramisu.


Units Scale
  • 4 large organic eggs
  • 1 tsp Bourbon vanilla powder
  • A pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tbsp local raw honey
  • 2/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup brown rice flour
  • Icing sugar or light brown sugar (optional, for dusting)


1. Preparing the Oven:

  • Preheat the oven to 350° F (Gas Mark 4).

2. Mixing Wet Ingredients:

  • Separate the egg yolks and whites, placing them in different bowls.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat the egg yolks with the light brown sugar, vanilla, and honey. Continue mixing until the mixture turns white and creamy.

3. Incorporating the Flour:

  • Gradually add the brown rice flour to the wet mixture, mixing continuously.

4. Whipping the Egg Whites:

  • Add a pinch of sea salt to the egg whites.
  • Beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.

5. Folding in Egg Whites:

  • Gently fold the whipped egg whites into the yolk and flour mixture until fully combined.

6. Shaping the Cookies:

  • On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, use a spoon or a pastry bag to shape the mixture into rounds or sticks. Ensure there’s enough space between each cookie.

7. Final Touch:

  • Lightly sprinkle the shaped cookies with either icing sugar or light brown sugar.

8. Baking:

  • Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake the cookies for approximately 15 minutes or until they are golden brown.


  1. Egg Quality: Using organic eggs can make a noticeable difference in the flavor and color of the cookies.
  2. Brown Rice Flour: This alternative flour offers a nutty flavor and is gluten-free, but you can substitute with regular all-purpose flour if preferred.
  3. Baking Time: Keep an eye on the cookies during the last few minutes of baking to prevent over-browning. Baking times may vary slightly based on your oven and the size of your cookies.
  4. Storage: Store the Savoiardi cookies in an airtight container to maintain their crispness. They can last up to a week if stored properly.
