Linguas De Veado – Melt in the mouth Wine Biscuits recipe

Linguas De Veado

These sweet little crunchy biscuits are called “Linguas de veado” in Portuguese.   Quite interestingly, when translated into English it means; “Butter cookies in the shape of a large tongue”.  However, I made them round in shape so that they are easier to pop into the mouth and crunch away in seconds!

Super easy to make and they all will vanish in a jiffy.

What you need:

Egg whites 3
Icing sugar 120 g
Margarine or butter (melted) 120 g
Plain flour 120 g
Salt 3 pinches
Vanilla1 tsp

Let’s make:

Set the Oven to 160 C

Cream the batter

  • Clean wipe a wide bowl perfectly dry to beat the egg whites
  • Pour the egg whites and beat until frothy.  This will take  2- 3 mins
  • In a seperate bowl beat butter and icing sugar until creamy
  • Now add the butter and sugar cream to the egg whites
  • Add Plain flour
  • Add salt and vanilla
  • Give a good stir and bring all together using a wooden spoon or a spatula

Pipe onto the tray and into the oven

  • Pour the batter into a piping bag
  • Pipe disc shapes on to a non-stick baking tray or a tray lined with parchment paper
  • Stick in the oven for 15 mins
  • or the edges of biscuits turn into a lovely golden colour
  • Take out of the oven and let the biscuits cool down on the tray itself for 20mins. This will make them go crusty and crunchy.
