Rest assured, neither Bambi nor his relatives fell prey to this recipe. Őznyelv is an old-school confection that was probably named after its form reminiscent of a deer’s tongue. Today confectioneries don’t offer these simple, but amazing sandwich cookies, so if you want to taste them, you have to make them at home.
Őznyelv is made from puff pastry and filled with cooked chocolate or vanilla cream. The dough is rolled out on powdered sugar, but if you don’t want to add sugar to the cookies, feel free to roll out the puff pastry on a floured surface.
The net preparing time is 30 minutes, but the cookies and the filling have to be cooled before assembling the sandwiches, so you will need to wait approx. 80-90 minutes until you can have a bite of deer’s tongue.
