Cat's Tongue Biscuits

Although they are not named for Katzenzungen Castle in Prissian, these cookies are just as noble.

Cat's Tongue Biscuits

Basic information

  • Preparation time: 00:30 h.
  • Persons: 6


    • 125 g butter
    • 100 g powdered sugar
    • 10 g vanilla sugar or ½ vanilla bean (pulp)
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 1 egg
    • 1 egg yolk
    • 150 g flour
    • 150 g chocolate nougat for filling and dipping


Prep Work
Line baking tray with baking paper.


  • Cream the softened butter together with icing sugar, vanilla sugar or vanilla pulp, and salt.
  • Add in the egg and egg yolks, one by one; add flour last.
  • Pour the mixture into a piping bag with plain tip; pipe bars of dough about 6 cm in length onto the baking sheet.
  • Allow sufficient space between the bars since the dough will expand some.
  • In a preheated oven, bake biscuits until golden.
  • Let cool slightly.


  • Put the chocolate nougat into a bowl and melt in a water bath.
  • Coat the underside of half of the batch of biscuits with chocolate nougat. Attach another biscuit to the underside of each dipped biscuit. Dip half of the two now-attached biscuits into the nougat chocolate.
  • Let nougat filling solidify.

Baking temperature: 180 degrees Celsius
Cooking time: about 10 minutes

A special tip:

Instead of chocolate nougat, you can also fill with apricot or orange marmalade.
