TWD - Cats’ Tongues

This week’s Tuesday with Dorie recipe is Cats’ Tongues. These are long thin biscuits that are meant to resemble cats’ tongues.

The dough is simple enough to make, and there is not a lot of it. You pipe it out into strips then bake until golden brown around the edges.

My cats’s tongues baked up flat - I don’t know why. I tasted one, and it was ok, and especially nice on the golden brown, caramelised edges. However, not perceiving any use for the remainder of these odd, flat cookies, I threw the rest out. It is unlikely that I will ever make them again.

To see what everyone else made this week and what they thought of it, visit the LYL section of the TWD website.

I love these biscuits! They're so elegant and I love the crispiness of them too :D

Dear Gaye, I love Cat's Tongues - there are many recipes out there and I have yet to try them but as the weather cools around here, I will give them a go - thank you for the inspiration!
Have a lovely day, my friend!

I am sorry these biscuits were a fail for you. Luckily there will be a new recipe next week:)

Hmm that is strange! They do spread when they bake but not this much! I have a fave recipe, intrigued to try this one!

I thought they were dipped in chocolate - that would persuade me to eat them!!!!
