These cookies are called 'cat's tongues'. They are easy to make. This is a French recipe, but it has already been converted to conventional measurements.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease baking sheets.

  • In a medium bowl, cream together butter and 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg whites one at a time until batter is light and fluffy. Stir in the vanilla. Mix in the flour just until blended. Dough will be a little stiff.

  • Using a cookie press or a pastry bag with a medium star tip, press dough onto prepared baking sheet into 3-inch lengths, like a ladyfinger.

  • Bake cookies in preheated oven until straw-colored, about 10 minutes. Cool on wire rack.

  • When cookies are cool, dip one end of each cookie in melted chocolate and place on wax paper until chocolate hardens. Store in a cool place.

The cookies turned out good. They don t taste like sugar cookies though more like shortbread. My chocolate chips started to cool before I got all the cookies dipped and then the cookie would break when I tried to pull it out f the chocolate. I would suggest adding something like butter to the chocolate chips to thin it out. Read More

This recipe is excellent! I got a lot of compliments. I used a cookie press and they looked like store-bought cookies. Caution if you use a press add flour. A pastry brush helps apply the chocolate. This recipe is quick and easy. Read More

Very easy recipe. I decided not to dip them in chocolate because I prefer a less rich cookie. They are perfect with espresso - French of course:) Read More

These cookies were great! They were quick and easy to make and they look fantastic if you use a cookie press. I did dip them in chocolate but the only thing was that the actual cookie part was a little lacking in flavor. I would suggest to others to add a bit more vanilla or something when you make them. But overall a great recipe! Read More

I've gotten many compliments on this cookie. Instead of vanilla extract I used maple flavoring. It's been a hit so far. Read More

I typically make these without the chocolate but I like them both ways. My boyfriend absolutely adores these. He thinks they taste like Nilla wafers but to be honest I like these cookies more. Everyone I've made these for has liked them so far. This recipe is a winner as far as I'm concerned. Read More
