The delicious French «langues de chat» cookies

Fancy a cute Spring tea party and a delicious sweet recipe easy to bake with kids?

Here is a classic French recipe, one Proust may have quoted instead of the Madeleine as these langues de chat (cat’s tongues) cookies are a staple in French families.

I wanted this recipe to be part of the Trousseau line mood board and it was a surprise treat for our two lovely models the day of the shooting!

They are really easy to make, light and irresistible and will go perfectly with a fruit salad or a compote.

Ingredients for 4 persons:

- 1/2 cup (60g) flour

- 1/4 cup (50g) salted butter at room temperature and cut in small pieces

- 1/3 cup (50g) icing sugar

- 1 egg white




Preheat the oven at 350 Fahrenheit / 180° Celsius 

Mix the butter and the icing sugar until creamy. Beat the egg white until it is stiff and add it gently to the butter-sugar mixture and add the flour carefully.

On a sheet of baking paper put a tea spoon of dough and leave a space between them. Cook for 6 min and let cool on a baking rack.

The langues de chat are ready!
