LANGUES DE CHAT

LANGUES DE CHAT

These lovely and delicate biscuits are called Cat's tongue. It's so cute isn't it ? They are very easy to bake and fun to eat ! Your children will adore them... They are very popular in France. A decade ago, you could find some in any French restaurant at the top of an ice-cream to decorate it... Nowadays, you tend to find a kind of more elaborate "tuiles" of any flavors...You can add dessicated coconut or orange blossom essence if you wish. Those cat's tongue would be comfy in any lunchbox or be the guest-star to your pic-nic ! 

Wine pairing : Baux-de-Provence (Red) from Provence.
