cat's tongues

Cat’s Tongues, or langues de chat, are a French classic. Thin, crispy, buttery yummies– I don’t think I’ve made them since I was in cooking school. Luckily, they aren’t hard to mix up and pipe out, and the oven more or less takes care of the shape. These baked up perfectly…nice elongated ovals, pale in the middle with a ring of crispy brown around the edges. I did actually pipe them out a little too big. They could have been a bit daintier in size and I would have gotten a few more out of the batch. The ones that came out the smallest, I paired up and sandwiched together with some ganache, as per Dorie’s excellent suggestion to “Milano” them. I’ll leave the larger ones as singles, spread their undersides with tempered chocolate tomorrow at work and give them to the guys at the gym in the afternoon. A plan for everything. Hahaha.

For the recipe, see Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll!

  1. Yours are perfect and I love that you take cookies to the gym. I am always taking my baking elsewhere (otherwise I’d eat it all!).

    • me, too– especially with cookies. bake a half recipe and then give half of them away!

      • They look utterly delicious with the browned edges nd now I really wish I hadn’t run out of time to bake them with the group. They seem to be just the kind of simple cookie that I like to eat.

  2. Ganache in between them sounds devine – what a treat.

  3. I love your thorough plan 🙂

  4. Oh these look yum!

  5. Mine got soft really fast so they were not crispy. The Milano version was the best. And those guys at the gym are really lucky.

  6. Oh, they look delicious!

  7. Hi Stef! I’m so glad you are still blogging. I was going through my old posts to figure out when I started blogging which I knew was close to 10 years ago. And I found that my first post was a Daring Baker’s challenge set by you. We made vol au vents from Baking with Julia. These cat’s tongue cookies look delicious. Happy baking!

    • oh my gosh– thanks for writing! we have been at it a long time, haven’t we? OG food bloggers right here! xoxox
