Got Egg Whites? Make Cookies!

I was experimenting with a new recipe yesterday that called for egg yolks. That experiment was a failure but on a positive note, I have egg whites!

What do you normally do with egg whites? I make Lidah Kucing, also known as Cat’s Tongue cookies, with mine. It’s a 4-ingredient cookie and it’s easy to make.

  • Add egg whites to the whipped butter, then fold in the flour


  • Pipe into cylinders and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Cool the cookies on the cookie sheet until cooled then store in an airtight container.
