    langues de chat

    Hi!  I just tried out a langues de chat recipe (http://allrecipes.com/recipe/10899/langues-de-chat/) and I followed the recipe completely. And it ended up tasting rather chalky. Is it supposed to taste like that? I have never tasted this biscuit before so I have no idea.  Thank you!
