Lenguas de Gato Cookies

These really do look like little cat’s tongues. In texture, they remind me of Madeline’s. Work fast while you’re piping, or the dough gets runny. Yum!

Lenguas de Gato

Lenguas de Gato are thin cookies that resembles the shape of a cat’s tongue. This is my favorite holiday treat when I lived at the Islands. Delicious when paired with your favorite cup of coffee or tea.
Beware! this is so addicting!!! This should be called magic cookies. The contents of the jar are all gone without knowing it. – Yayo

Ingredients:
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup superfine white sugar
Whites from 3 eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted

Cooking procedure:
Preheat oven to 375 deg.F. Line baking tray lined with parchment paper. Get the piping bag ready with a standard number 12 round tip. (You can use a zip-top bag with the tip cut off if you don’t have a piping bag).

Cream the butter using an electric mixer then gradually add the sugar until mixed for 2 minutes. Stir-in the egg whites and mix for about 3 to 4 minutes. Add salt and vanilla extract. Slowly stir-in the flour. Continue to mix for about 3 minutes or until the mixture is thoroughly incorporated. Get a piping bag and install the round tip. Place the mixture in the piping bag. Begin piping each piece to 21/2 to 3 inches in length.

Bake for about 10 minutes, just until there is a hint of brown around the edges. Remove from the oven until the temperature cools down. Then place in a small plate for serving, or an air tight container to keep for a week or two. Serve with your favorite hot beverage.
