Steps Langues de Chat Cookie Recipe

To prepare the cat’s tongues put the butter at room temperature in the bowl of the planetary mixer or use an electric whisk, along with the powdered sugar and work everything with the whisk maximum speed, until you get a smooth cream.
Add the sifted flour while continuing to work.

Transfer the mixture you have obtained into a sac-à-poche or cake syringe fitted with a smooth nozzle.
On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, holding the piping bag slightly raised, form strips about 2/3 inch (5/8 cm) long and 1 inch (2 cm) wide, leaving space between each cat’s tongue so they don’t touch each other during baking.

Once all the dough is done, place in the refrigerator and let rest for 1 hour.
After the necessary time has passed, bake in a preheated oven at 350° F (180° C) for 7 minutes or until they are lightly browned on the sides, take them out of the oven, immediately remove them from the pan with the help of a spatula without breaking them and let them cool.

Melt the chocolate for a few seconds in the microwave, dip a part of the cookie in the chocolate and let it dry completely on a tray, detaching it every now and then.
