Sweets from across Europe: the cat tongues

Sweets from across Europe: the cat tongues

The cat tongues are a classic dessert of the European pastry-making and gastronomy.

They are light and friable cookies and they are so called because of their narrow and stretched shape. They are simple both in the aspect and in the composition: the few ingredients are albumens, sugar, butter and flour. The recipe is also a clever way to save exceeding albumens from other recipes.

The cat tongues are perfect with tea or hot chocolate and cream, fruits and ice creams.

Centrale Restaurant offers you a cream of mascarpone with cat toungues as dessert! Take a look at our menu!
