For our non-Italian speaking followers, the name “Lingue di Suocera” literally means “Mother-in-law’s tongues”. These dough sheets are long exactly like long-tongued mothers-in-law (ours are an exception of course 🙂 ) and they are thin, crunchy, and have an elongated and curved shape. If you need to send a subliminal message to your mother-in-law, this is the recipe for you! ;-))

- Bake for about 5 minutes on the lower third of the oven. Don’t get distracted because it can get burnt.
