    Where does the 1 cup of sherry come in? It’s in the ingredients but not the recipe? I’m guessing it goes over the ladyfingers?

      Thank you so much for bringing that to my attention. The sherry is poured directly over the ladyfingers. I also reduced the amount of sherry I used the last time I made it to 1/2 cup.

      Hope that helps.
