Onto sheet of wax paper or a paper plate sift together flour and baking powder; set aside.
In small mixing bowl combine egg yolks, sugar, lemon peel, and vanilla and, using electric mixer, beat until thick and lemon colored, about 3 minutes; beat in half of flour mixture.
In another bowl, using clean beaters, beat egg whites with cream of tartar until stiff peaks form; gently fold whites, alternately with remaining flour mixture, into yolk mixture.
Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
Fit a pastry bag with a No.6 plain 1/2-inch-wide tube and spoon batter into bag; pipe out batter onto sheet, forming 16 strips, each about 3 inches long and 1 inch wide.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
Using a spatula, immediately remove lady fingers to a wire rack; let cool.
