Langues de chat (dessert biscuits)

I made some Zabaglione (recipe in the Fast and Easy cooking book) for a Thermomix demonstration a week ago and since the recipe asks for 4 egg yolks, I was left with 4 egg whites that I didn’t know what to do with. Since the Zabaglione is usually served with biscuits, the book mentioned making Langues de chat to compliment the gorgeous Italian dessert. I had never made these biscuits at home before but had them many times as a kid to go with ice-cream or mousses. The recipe is ultra easy and fast and these biscuits keep for days in a biscuit tin.

Ingredients

4 egg whites
120g softened butter
100g  sugar
150g plain flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking powder

  1. Mix all the ingredients 50 sec, speed 8
  2. Scrape down the sides and lid of the TM bowl with the spatula. Drop teaspoons of the mixture on a baking tray lined with baking paper, leaving space for them to spread as they bake. With the back of the spoon, flatten the batter slightly to form kind of cat tongues shapes.
  3. Bake for about 10 minutes at 160C/300F/gas 3 until golden at the edge.
  4. Leave out to cool and carefully remove them from the tray and store in a biscuit tin.
