French for ‘cat’s tongues’, these delicate biscuits may be served with ice cream, sorbet or as a light biscuit with tea or coffee. The biscuits are piped into finger-like shapes onto baking trays or cooked in special trays with shallow indentations in it. Langues de chat are sometimes called ‘lady fingers’, but these are usually fatter and more spongy.
