Langues de chat (Crispy Vanilla Cookies)

Langues de chat are French cook­ies that resem­ble the tongue of a cat. Hence the name “langues de chat”, which means “cat tongues” in French. These cook­ies are flat and crispy, with a light vanil­la fla­vor. They go extreme­ly well with cof­fee or tea. And they are very easy to make! In only 10 min­utes, you will have deli­cious cook­ies to enjoy with your cof­fee!

Recipe

My recipe was inspired by this French recipe (note: my recipe is slight­ly dif­fer­ent).

It is help­ful (but not manda­to­ry) to have a dessert dec­o­ra­tor or dec­o­rat­ing kit for this recipe.
