Cheese Langue De Chat Cookies

Langues de chat are classic french cookies. These cookies are also called cat's tongue or "lidah kucing" in Indonesian. Most recipes tend to ask for more egg yolks, leaving you with a giant lot of leftover egg whites. If you are bored with egg white omelette, angel cake, meringue, mousse, etc... this recipe will ensure that you put a good use of the egg whites :)

For a little twist, I make the cheese version of langues de chat. The cookies are very crispy, but once you put them in your mouth, they will melt instantly, leaving you with the buttery, cheesy and sugary feeling. Dipping langues de chat in melted white chocolate will be a more sinful and sexy way to enjoy them :D
