Langues de chat or cat's tongues

While Langues de chats or “Cats’ Tongues,” gets their name from their long, flat shape, their flavor is melt in your mouth delicious...I got this recipe from one of my aunts who used to live near by when we were small kids...She used to make these cookies and would give us a box full every time she made these little treats.....We were tempted to eat these cookies because of their name and taste of course....

When I grew up and started to cook by myself, I asked her for the recipe and she very happily gave it to me... This is a french delicacy which is traditionally served with jam in the middle but I like mine plain....They make an elegant finish to any meal when dipped in chocolate....

All you need is

Unsalted butter-1\2 cup
Powdered sugar-1 cup
Vanilla extract-1tsp
Egg whites-4
All purpose flour-1 cup
Method of preparation

Place butter and sugar in a bowl and beat till soft and creamy
Add vanilla extract and beat till mixed well
Add half of the egg whites and mix till combined
Add half of the flour and mix
Add the remaining and mix again
Add the remaining flour and mix till combined
Do not over mix
Place the dough in a pastry bag with a 1\4 inch plain tip
Let it rest at room temperature for about an hour
Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
Pipe 21\2 inch long lines on the paper keeping a distance of 1 inch between each line
Bake for 9-10 minutes
You can keep the cookies plain or spread jam between two of them and sandwich.....You can also dip half of the cookie in melted chocolate and keep in the fridge for chocolate to set....
