TWD - Mrs Corbitt’s Pecan Cake Fingers


This week’s Tuesday With Dorie recipe is Mrs Corbitt’s Cake Fingers. It’s hard to describe these - kind of a meringue cookie with browned butter icing.

I thought I’d really like these, but they were a tad too sweet for me. I took Steph’s tip and thinned the icing with water rather than pressing it onto the cookies. I also iced the cookies before cutting them to save time.

To see what everyone else made and what they thought of it, visit the LYL section of the TWD website.


  1. These were also too sweet for me, I gave them all away (made 1/4 of the recipe). They were also fiddly and that icing? I don't know what to say!! I didn't thin mine and it completely cracked when I sliced them. Oh well. Interesting technique, I suppose!

  2. Well, Bill wouldn't go for these anyway, so glad to hear this is a rare recipe of Dorie's that I don't need to make!!

  3. Sorry these were too sweet for you. We enjoyed these little fingers.

  4. i ddi enjoy these with strong coffee, and loved the icing, but i did have to cut them really slim. a little went a long way!
