Cookies made With Tang Powder- Orange Cookies

                                                                               
Last month I prepared this tang flavoured cookies and it turned out to be really well. Just as a spontaneous thought I prepared this recipe and the end result was really nice. Till now i was using tang only to make orange drink. During this summer it will be very useful to satisfy your hunger at any point of time.


Ingredients:
1 cup Butter (unsalted), softened
3/4 cup Sugar
1 1/2 cups All purpose flour
1 tbsp fresh squeezed Orange juice
1 tbsp Orange zest
1 tbsp Orange flavour tang
1 Egg
1 tbsp Orange color tutti-frutti
1/4 tsp Baking powder
1/4 tsp Salt


Method:
With the help of hand blender, cream together butter and sugar on medium speed utill it becomes light and fluffy. Add orange zest, juice, tang and with the help of long spatula scrap down the side of bowl to mix evenly. Blend it again for a few seconds. Add the beaten eggs and mix thoroughly.
Sift flour , baking powder and salt together. Add the flour mixture to the butter batter and mix together just until it becomes blended.
Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1/2 hour. Pre-heat oven to 170 Degree Celsius. Unwrap the dough and pluck walnut sized bits and make them into small balls. Flatten them into discs and place them on baking tray, sprinkle some orange colored tutti frutti over them. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Cool on sheets for 5 minutes then transfer them to wire racks. Later  you can store these in an air tight container for about a week. And enjoy this freshly homemade tangy flavoured cookies  in this summer.

  36. Tang.... what an interesting flavor to add to your cookies. At first, I did not know what Tang was until you mentioned that you use it to make your orange drinks. Then I understood. Tang was very popular while I was growing-up. I really like the idea that you added it to your cookie batter.

    Cheers.
