Lengua De Gato

These thin cookies are really to die for cookies! It's main ingredient is butter so don't settle for "pretending to be butter" ingredient or else you won't get an authentic Lengua De Gato taste that you want.

When I was baking yema cake for orders, I always had extra egg whites that I don't know where to use at. Yeah, I heard about lengua de gato but I guess I really didn't paid much attention to it coz I thought it's hard to make. Boy, I was wrong! In fact, it is so easy to make.

I got this recipe from Bake Happy Manila FB page courtesy of Ms. Marie Tayag. If you have time, try this recipe too, you won't regret it :)
