Who doesn’t love cookie? Shiroi Koibito / White lover’s cookie, the Langue de chat made from Japan is one of my favorite cookies. But I am not paying USD$42 for 36 pieces of cookies. So why not do it myself? I followed the ochikeron‘s recipe for Chocolat Blanc et Langue de Chat. It’s easy , it tastes the same as Shiroi Koibito and it only needs 5 ingredients!
What is Shiroi Koibito?
Shiroi Koibito is a langue de chat, a french cookie, sandwiched with white chocolate. It is crispy with a light texture. You will enjoy the crispiness of the butter cookies and melting chocolate in one single cookie.
Ingredients for Langue de chat
- 100g butter
- 100g cake flour (You can also use all purpose flour)
- 1 egg
- 60g granulated sugar
- 240g white chocolate*
*I used Better Crocker Chocolate Frosting instead. Whip the frosting with electricity mixer for 2 mins, the frosting will become fluffy.
Recipe adapted from CreateEatHappy:
Instructions for the cookies;
- Print out the cookie template. Or you can draw.
- Melt the butter (Microwave or wait until soft), then cream the butter. Add granulated sugar, egg, and cake flour (Sift the flour helps it to incorporate better)
*You may add vanilla extract.
- Preheat the oven to 180C (356F).
- Transfer the batter to a pastry bag and snip off the end. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, place the template under the parchment paper.
- Pipe out the batter in the squares . Then remove the template.
- Bake at 180C (356F) for 8-10 minutes. Let the cookies cool completely on the baking sheet.
Original Instructions for the chocolate filling;
- Melt the white chocolate over a double boiler, line 6-inch square pan with plastic wrap (or use aluminium foil! ), then pour in the chocolate and spread evenly.
- Freeze the white chocolate. Cut it into 16 squares.
While the chocolate is soft, place it between two cookies. Then freeze the cookies.
FlyFly’s Lazy version for the chocolate filling;
- Pour 100g of frosting in a mixing bowl
- Whip the frosting with electronic mixer for 2 mins
- Transfer the whipped frosting into a pantry bag
- Pipe out the frosting on the cookies.
You can smell the buttery taste when it’s still baking!
And it’s so much cheaper by doing from scratch than buying it from Japan. Plus, you don’t have to wait for the delivery!!
Although I use the whipped icing, the outcome was still pretty good. And the cookie was surprisingly match with milk chocolate filling.
