Marie's Light Fingers
OK. This is hardly anyone’s favorite recipe, but it’s
still important. A fixation with purple, a brush with
kleptomania, what else is there to say? A light
entrant, maybe, but also in some people’s opinion a
very tasty one

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 300F/150C/135C fan assisted/gas mark 2.
    Line a baking tray with baking paper
    Sift the flour and set aside. Separate the eggs into
    large bowls
    Add about half the superfine sugar to the egg yolks and beat
    well until light, fluffy and pale in color

  • Step 2

    With an electric mixer, beat the egg whites in the second bowl,
    adding the vinegar and continuing until stiff. Tip in the
    remaining superfine sugar while slowly whisking until it
    stands in soft peaks. This beats wiping someone’s ass, eh?
    Pour the egg yolk mixture into the meringue and fold
    carefully together until combined. Add the flour and
    continue to fold gently until mixed, being careful not to lose
    the air in the mix

  • Step 3

    Take your sister’s kids for the week
    7 Put the mix into a large piping bag fitted with a ½1/2
    inch/1.25cm plain nozzle and pipe fingers onto the prepared
    baking sheet
    8 Lightly push an almond onto the tip of each cake and dust with
    a little sifted confectioners’ sugar
    Take the kids for the week again
    Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until pale golden in color and firm to the touch.
    Allow to cool completely on the baking sheet
    Paint the nails with purple color
    OK, it’s probably best if you just keep the kids, period
