Langues de Chat

A langue de chat, or cat’s tongue, is a type of cookie made with flour, butter, sugar, and eggs. They are named for their shape and texture, which is similar to a cat’s tongue. Langues de chat are typically served with tea or coffee.


  • 9 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 6 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate, melted


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease baking sheets.

2. 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 vanilla. Mix in flour just until blended; dough will be slightly stiff.

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

4. Bake cookies in preheated oven until straw-colored, about 10 minutes; cool on wire rack before dipping into melted chocolate .
