My kids think these biscuits look like a cat's tongue - hence the name! I like to serve them with ice cream but they're good on their own. They cook quickly, so keep an eye on them while they bake.

IngredientsServes: 8

  • 100g butter, softened
  • 150g icing sugar
  • few drops vanilla (optional)
  • 175g plain flour
  • 3 egg whites

MethodPrep:15min ›Cook:10min ›Ready in:25min

  1. Preheat the oven to 160 C / Gas 2-3. Line or grease a baking tray.
  2. Mix the softened butter with the icing sugar (and a few drops of vanilla, if using). Add the flour, egg whites and mix. The dough should be firm and smooth - scoop into a pastry bag and push out thin 4cm oblong shapes onto the baking tray (keeping them a few centimetres apart).
  3. Bake for 10 to 12minutes, watching carefully. Remove when the edges begin to brown.
  4. If you want to make them more curved - they are quite flexible when warm. Place them over a rolling pin and stretch them slightly - they should stay curved as they cool.

Langues de Chat (French Cat Tongue Cookies)

This is my second posting for The Secret Recipe Club! In the Secret Recipe Club, each blogger is assigned a different blog each month. They secretly choose a recipe, prepare it, and post it on a designated day. This month, I was assigned The More Than Occasional Baker.

Ros’ blog was new to me and it was difficult to decide on just one recipe. I finally settled on these Langues de Chat, but other recipes now on my list include Portuguese Egg Tarts, Rose Cupcakes, and London Almond Cookies. She has a baking goldmine of both sweet and savory posts, with a large assortment of cakes, cupcakes, cookies, breads, brownies, and pastries.

Langues de Chat are French cookies called Cat Tongues. These light cookies are soft in the middle and crisp around the edges. Egg whites are beaten until stiff and folded into butter, sugar, and flour. The mixture is piped into thin strips and baked until the edges are golden brown. They can be plain with vanilla extract or flavored with various garnishes.

Really watch the temperature when baking these cookies. They can darken quickly. The cookies are best the day they are made, but store extras in an airtight container and eat within 2 days. I live in Florida with high humidity. They may last a little longer in a dryer area.

I used a mixture of garnishes on my cookies. I left a few plain, sprinkled some with lavender or cinnamon, and dipped the others in chocolate. My favorites were the cinnamon Langues de Chat. For chocolate, use your favorite- dark, white, or semi-sweet.


Cat’s Tongue Cookies

To make the cookies, cream the butter and sugar at high speed until light and fluffy. Add the egg whites and vanilla and mix on medium speed until well incorporated.

Sift the flour and salt and add them to the butter mixture. Continue to mix at low speed until well combined.

Transfer the batter to a medium pastry bag with a small round tip (we used a small zip top bag and snipped a small hole in the corner). Pipe the dough into 3-inch strips onto cookie sheets lined with parchment paper, leaving 1 inch between each cookie.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool (they crisp up as they cool). These cookies are best eaten freshly baked.

Also delicious sandwiched with chocolate ganache.

**To make the chocolate ganache, in a small saucepan, heat the cream over medium heat. Add the chocolate chips and turn off the heat. Let stand for 1 minute to let the chocolate melt. Whisk together until creamy and smooth. Transfer to a bowl. Let cool completely until thick and spreadable.


The best cat’s tongue cookies are crunchy! Here’s the secret

The best cat’s tongue cookies blend perfectly with Zabaione and today I really wish a warm cup of this sauce where dunking this delicacy.

I’m leaving you quickly the recipe for Zabaione Sauce, meanwhile drink a glass of Vov that’s perfect for these winter days.

It’s cloudy here in Tuscany and a bit cold as well. I need to stay at home in my comfort zone and waiting to heal completely from the flu.

Well, what’s better than making a mess in my kitchen?
I don’t think that exists a person who doesn’t love cat’s tongue cookies, anyway I myself often find something wrong while tasting them.

What is it? It’s because of the consistency!

Yes, because the best cat’s tongue cookies are delicious if they’re crunchy in each part of the cookie, not only in the edges. I read right a few hours ago, about these cookies: “crispy in the edges and soft in the middle”. Well, this is completely wrong.

Cat’s tongue cookies must be friable. And it’s not elementary to make crumbly this cookie.

That’s why many people say that cat’s tongue cookies are “difficult to make”. In fact, they’re insidious:

Well, I already answered you: the consistency.

Bad cat’s tongue cookies are

Secrets to making the best cat’s tongues cookies:

  1. Heat the oven pan (90°C 194°F) where you’re going to pipe the mixture. This avoids immediately shock the surface creating a barrier that makes it difficult to cook the middle of the cookie.
  2. Once you turned off the oven let them cool well. Break one cookie, if it’s not completely crunchy, put it in the oven again for 5 minutes and test one more time.

With these 2 ways, I can assure you the best cat’s tongue cookies you’ll ever eat.

Since during Summer I run Cooking Classes and Private Dinners in Tuscany , I’m very curious about different ways to face cooking and baking.

Have you a different trick to obtain the best cat’s tongue cookies?

Maybe did you try them with a particular flavor?

What are your difficulties in making these cookies?

Please, leave a comment, I’ll be happy to answer all your questions, that’s my job!

Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 12 minutes
Total time: 32 minutes
Serves: 30 cookies


Whip the butter for 5 minutes with a spatula.

Mix butter and sugar until the mixture is very foamy, then slowly add the eggs one by one and keep whipping, add flour, keep whipping for 5 minutes more and let it rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes put the mixture in a sac à poche with a thin spout.

Grease 2 oven plates (or use some baking paper) and, at a distance of 3 cm from each other, make 5 cm length “stripes” of dough.

Put in the oven at 200 ° C and remove the cat tongues cookies ​​when the edges are golden brown.

Take the cookies out of the oven, let them cool, and then store them in a sealed box: in this way, they can be kept for a couple of weeks. Serve with custard, for tea, soaked in Vin Santo or covered with almond cream.

Cat’s Tongue Cookies

Happy Goat’s Year !! It’s the first day of the Lunar New Year and I am sure everyone must be busy going on their rounds of visitations ! Well, my visitation usually happens only on the 2nd day of the new year, so am I glad for this day of break where I get to “nua” at home ! Hahaha!! I would love to go for some shopping therapy though, the only time when I am free to shop in the day… but else, I guess other than GIANT supermarket, everywhere seems closed.

Since cable tv is having all channels for viewing for free during the CNY as always, it’s nevertheless quite shiok to be a couch potato for a day. Oh yes, not forgetting I get to explore some recipes too ! Quite a fruitful day still !!

What would you do if you have so much egg whites from the leftovers of making kueh lapis ? Here’s one simple recipe you ought to try. Cat’s Tongue Cookies

If anyone has ever tried the cigar egg rolls from Japan, this is literally quite similar. You could roll them into cigar rolls or you could have them in this version. But having them in cigar rolls shapes require a portioning frame which I do not have, so let’s make do with the cat’s tongue for the time being.

Though it’s just the first day of the Lunar New Year with a few more days of break to go, but time seems to fly ! While we had 5 days of continuous off days from work this week, it’s almost coming to the end of day two already. Oh no, I guess before I knew it, I will be having super Monday blues again! No wonder my colleagues and I were always saying… when it comes, means it will end very soon also. I hope Monday don’t come so soon, pleaseeeeeee !! I believe all office workers will be able to reconcile this kind of mood swings with me very well, don’t we ?!

Nevertheless, let’s make full use of the next few days to relax and recharge and hopefully be more geared up after this new year break !
