Guess what? If you think it is strange to put Tang in a cookie - trust your instincts. These just taste weird and chalky. Skip the Tang and use fresh OJ and orange zest for orange cookies.

The orange flavor is too strong. If I make them again, I will cut the amount of Tang in half or at least by 1/3. Also, this didn't have any impact on the taste or texture of the cookie after it was baked, but the dough was unusually dry as opposed to the usual stickiness of cookie dough. If you like Dreamsickles, you will like these cookies!

Not sure if I did something wrong when I made these, but the batter was quite runny. Looked more like cake batter than cookie dough. I ended up making one pan of bars and one dozen cookies. Despite the weird consistency, these tasted delicious. I would probably make them again.
