Ramadhan Mubarak and Cat Tongues..

The holy month of Ramadhan for Muslims is just a day away and already supermarket shelves are loaded with a huge variety of fresh, dried and stuffed dates since a week ago... I hv been waiting for the month of Ramadhan since like forever.. its a time for spiritual reflection, prayer, doing good deeds and spending time with family and friends.. dont get me wrong yah.. u do good deeds whenever u can but doing it in the month of Ramadhan is something special..

As we already know.. fasting is intended to help/teach Muslims self-discipline, self-restraint n generosity... It also reminds them of the suffering of poor ppl.. who may not get to eat lavishly all the time... It is common to have one meal (Sahur) just bef sunrise and another (Iftar) right after sunset... This meal will commonly consist of dates, following the example of the Prophet Muhammad and bec Ramadan is a time to spend with friends and family.. the fast will often be broken by Muslim families coming together to share in an evening meal...

Well anyway.. long story short... this is the last cookie that I will bake bef Eid.. as always I usually will try to post pics and recipes of my desert/kuih during Ramadhan.. sooo.. I would like to wish u guys a peaceful Ramadhan.. May this Ramadhan be filled with many blessings for u and ur family.. May u hv a very happy Ramadhan..

250g Margarine (I used butter)
3 tbsp powdered milk
1/2 tsp vanilie powder
200g powdered sugar
180 ml egg whites
250g of all purpose flour

poppy seeds/ grated cheese/ sprinkles for decoration

• Preheat oven to 180 deg C
• Grease a baking pan with margarine
• Beat margarine, powdered milk, vanilie, and powdered sugar until smooth
• Add in egg whites a little at a time until blended
• Add in flour a little at a time and continue to whip until smooth
• Put the mixture into the bag bag. Pipe into the pan (abt 5 cm long)
• Bake for 15 minutes.
• Quickly remove cookies from pan.
• Cool down, and place in an airtight container

You may sprinkle it with grated cheese, poppy seed, or sprinkles for decoration.
To make Chocolate cat tongues u need to reduce the flour by 50g n add 50g of cocoa powder... I added 1 tsp of mocca paste to half of my batter to get mocca cat tougues

And in case u wanna know how I get my cat's tougue in similar shapes and sizes.. this is one of the pans that I bought while shopping in that supermarket in Jkt :o)

Hi Rima, was at Yat Maria's place noticed your callsign and busybody over.
Wow! I have never seen, nor heard or tried these 'cat's tongue' cakes.
They sure look good too.
Anymore left? I think 6 pieces with iced coffee will do me fine, ha ha.

You have fun and keep a song in your heart, best regards, Lee.
