Langues de Chat Dessert Biscuits
Literally translated as ‘cats tongues’ these very delicate morsels are quite delicious on their own but go really well with any creamy dessert. Think Panna Cotta, think custards or light and airy things. (Of which I don’t have that many on here TBH.)
I love them on their own as quite an elegant accompaniment to a little Crio Bru. You can feel spoilt without being spoilt. Anyway, get on with it. Cats tongues to go around! (But call them the proper name, they sound so much more, well, erudite.)
