Default Saviata or Shavolette Cookie Recipe

I've been looking and looking for a recipe for these cookies, which
are carried in a number of Italian bakeries in the New York/New Jersey
area. They are delicious!!!

Although they are sometimes incorrectly called Savoiardi, they are not
the standard ladyfingers, which are sometimes used in desserts like
tierra misu cakes. They are flatter, flavored (almond?) and have a
pale white crust or glaze on them.

Here's a photo:

Any help would be appreciated.


Could there be any anisette flavoring in these cookies?
