Spanish influence is evident in many of the names of local Filipino baked goods, though the actual product differs from the Spanish original, which include lengua de gato, polvoron, leche flan, and brazo de mercedes.Lengua de Gato in the philippines differs in Spain since in Spain it is shaped like Ladyfingers and in France, is called Langues de chat, which are classic French cookies are oval buttery cookies, with a blonde center and lightly browned edges while in the philippines, it's a deliciously rich, tongue-shaped butter cookie. Hence, the literal translation "Cat's Tongue."

The Best Lengua De Gato in the Philippines are made by Tartland Baguio, Based in Baguio City in the Northern Philippines!
