Thankyou! Simple recipe.... turned out well. I needed some mexican desserts for a mexican themed lunch that I'm helping out with, so these worked perfectly. My biggest thing was experimenting with the different piping attatchment to figure out which one made the cookies turn out the best. I found that using a widest/ biggest one worked well. Thanks again!

I love this recipe for cat's tongue! 1/4 cup of egg whites is about 2 egg whites. Make sure you beat them very well!. I suggest lining the pan with parchament paper. Make sure you watch the oven very well!
