Recipe Sweet Languages ​​of Procida di of 25-09-2017 [Updated on 25-09-2017]

The sweet tongues of Procida, also called tongues of ox, are a traditional recipe of the beautiful island of Procida! They are prepared with two layers of puff pastry, stuffed with a tasty lemon flavored custard and covered with sugar to make their surface crunchy.
During my weekend in Procida (after which I also wrote an article on what to eat in Procida) I loved them, they are found in practically every bar and, in the b & b where I was staying, they served them in place of the croissant for breakfast.
If the destination is a bit too far for you then you can prepare these sweet tongues directly at home, so as to bring a little Procidan traction to your city too!
Ivano and I have now gone into obsession with these languages ​​and that in the end I'm finding myself preparing them very often, also because they are very easy to make;)
