I have been looking all over for this recipe. these cookies are great.
- Penny

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.

The frosting is way to "tangy" with 3 tbsp. In making them again I will probably half this amount!!!
- Amy

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.
- A Baker

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.
- Tn

These cookies are so good and easy to make. They have become a tradition in my house. Every year the children ask will you make the tang cookies?
