Recipe Description

Biskut Lidah Kucing, it is named so because it resembled a cat’s tongue (or a flat version of lady finger sponge) and is an international favourite with variations from France to Spain with one thing in common – it is crispy and long-ish. Can be eaten on its own or served with any hot beverage, fruit compote or ice cream. This is a variation with cheese. Other names: Cat’s Tongue Cookie, Langues de Chat (French), Lingue di Gatto (Italian).

    Sorry , this is not Malaysia cuisine . The original comes from Bagiou, Philippines where it is well known local product called ” Lengua el gato.”.
