I love Dreamsicles and this cookie is close. I did add a tablespoon of dried orange peel to the mix that really jazzed it up. I will reduce that to one teaspoon next time. Great cookie!

Hi! I thought these cookies were great! My kids loved them allot and ask for them often. You can tone down the sugar and/or the Tang a bit and they still taste fine!

I have made my very first batch of these today and it is wonderful! I had to restrain myself from eating it as my school is having a semi-Halloween party tonight. If I can't eat just one - can you imagine my classmates....YUMMY :) With the color of the cookies it's actually a perfect fall season cookie.

I made these jars for a church bazaar. They sold very well to those people who weren't "chocolate and nut" fans. They are just unique enough to attract attention!

I made these for a harvest party at our chuch where everybody made a jar and took them home. They all came back and said how good they were and ask where I got the recipe from. I have also make some with Splenda they were also good. Thanks again for the recipe.

Not very good! They burn at 375 and are grossly sweet.

everyone loves these! Especially the "Tanginess" it's what makes them so yummy!
- A Baker
I really liked the idea of 'creamsicle' cookies and was excited to try these. I did not much care for the finished product... the Tang makes the cookie a little sour and they are almost sickeningly sweet. I will look for another recipe with orange flavoring or zest instead of Tang.
