Schär Lady Fingers with Recipe

Rating: 4 Pugs
These have a light airy texture. They are sweet but not too sweet. I think They are a nice light snack when you are craving something with a bit of sugar.

They are also lactose free, non GMO, and preservative free. 2 cookies are 130 calories, 2.5 g of fat, and only 11 g of sugar. They are large cookies (which I like). The bigger the treat the better.

I have made trifles with this brand of ladyfingers and they hold up well. One of my favorite recipes is as follows.

Strawberry Tiramisu


Schär Ladyfingers
1/2 cup black coffee (optional)
1 to 2 Vanilla pudding mixes
1 to 2 containers of Kraft Cool whip
1/2 to 1 pkg. of cream cheese (softened)

Strawberries (sliced)
Solid Milk chocolate bar


Mix pudding using only one cup of milk. Depending on the size of the trifle you are making you may need 2 boxes of pudding. I always use 2.
Once the pudding is mixed, beat with 1/2 pkg. of cream cheese until smooth (use full cream cheese with 2 puddings). Once smooth, blend with 1/2 a container of Kraft Cool Whip (a full container if you are using 2 puddings).

Lay down your first layer of ladyfingers on the bottom of your trifle bowl. lightly brush with black coffee (optional).
Pour over a layer of your pudding Cool Whip mixture (enough to cover your ladyfingers).
Place a layer of sliced strawberries.
Then a layer of just Cool Whip (not mixed with anything).
Use a grater to shave milk chocolate over the top of the Cool Whip. You don’t need a lot, just enough to lightly cover the top.

Repeat layers until your trifle is the desired height.
