Cat’s Tongue Biscuits – Langues-de-chat

This biscuit is called cat’s tongue because its shape resemble a cat’s tongue, long and thin. In French, it’s called langues-de-chat and this biscuit actually come from the Netherlands. You can pair this biscuit with ice-cream or sorbet, creme brulee or with cream/jam sandwiched together. It uses the typical butter, sugar, flour and egg ingredients… so I bet you know how it’s taste like… like a butter biscuit.
