langues de chat

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi! 

 

I just tried out a langues de chat recipe (http://allrecipes.com/recipe/10899/langues-de-chat/) and I followed the recipe completely.

And it ended up tasting rather chalky. Is it supposed to taste like that? I have never tasted this biscuit before so I have no idea. 

Thank you!

Describe chalky as milk of mag is the only thing I have ever put in my mouth that I would tag with that descriptor.

The recipe seems like it calls for way too much flour to me. I would cut the flour back to a cup.

Use a good brand name butter as well...(salted IMO).

It would be because these are a form of shortbread and they will have a different consistency that you can liken to "chalky". That is why they are nicknamed "cat's tongue". Have you ever been licked by a cat with a smooth tongue?? lol :D

I see, thanks so much for all your advice! And no, @Fablesable haha I haven't. But I guess that means the recipe was an accurate one then, thank you (:
