Dreamsickle Cookies


1 1/2 cups brown sugar
3/4 cup shortening
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 cup white chocolate chips
3 tablespoons orange powdered drink mix, such as Tang
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon butter or margarine
3 tablespoons powdered orange flavored drink mix, such as Tang
1 cup confectioners' sugar
water or milk

Preheat oven to 375F. Lightly grease baking sheets. Cream the shortening and the sugar together until light. Add the eggs and vanilla, mixing well. Dissolve the baking soda in the buttermilk. Add the buttermilk mixture, salt, 3 tablespoons Tang, flour and baking powder to the shortening mixture. Mix well. Stir in the white chocolate chips. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto the prepared sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Frost cookies while still hot with Tang Glaze.

To Make Tang Glaze: Combine the butter, 3 tablespoons Tang, confectioners sugar plus enough water or milk to reach a thick yet still pourable consistency and beat until smooth.

Would make this again.
Directions didn't state some needed steps - glaze needs to be doubled and simmered for at least one hour...it turns it into an almost caramel consistency and makes a more appealing cookie. Took it to a cookie exchange, and coworkers loved it - I must say this is something you don't want to fit in to other baking/cooking endeavors - way too involved to be able to multi-task. 4 stars

Would make this again.
AFTER MIXING, THE DOUGH SEEMED RATHER DRY AND I THOUGHT I HAD LEFT OUT SOME KIND OF LIQUID. BUT...AFTER ROLLING IN ONE INCH BALLS, THEY FIRMED UP REALLY WELL.
I WOULD MAKE THEM AGAIN, BUT NEXT TIME WITH A LITTLE LESS TANG. THEY DEFINITELY ARE A CHEWY COOKIE..ALMOST CRISP. AT 375, 10 MINUTES IS JUST ABOUT RIGHT, DEPENDING ON YOUR OVEN.
3 stars

Would make this again.
The frosting is way to "tangy" with 3 tbsp. In making them again I will probably half this amount!!! 4 stars

I love these cookies brings back memories as a kid eating the ice cream. Every time I make them all my friends and family want them. 5 stars

Would not make this again.
IF I made these again I would leave out the chips and the icing and just make the orange cookie. They were just way way way too sweet. 2 stars
