Introduction: Vegan Tang Cookies

I’ll start by explaining that this creation is due to my mother’s addiction to Tang. It was a refrigerator staple while I was growing up. My mom doesn’t start the morning with a cup of coffee, she drinks a glass of Tang, everyday for probably at least 30 years. My siblings and I always joke that our mom is probably Tang’s number one customer and the reason they thrive as a business. Anyway, since we always joke with my mom about Tang I decided to make her a special surprise and make her favorite drink into a cookie! These cookies turned out better than I imagined with almost a creamsicle flavor.

Supplies

1 3/4 cup all purpose flour- sifted

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup Tang drink powder

1 flax egg - 1 tablespoon ground flax seed mixed with 3 tablespoons of warm water

1/2 cup vegan butter- softened

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1/2 cup vegan white chocolate chips- I used one bar chopped into chunks

Step 1: Make Egg, Fluff Butter

First things first: preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Start by mixing your flax egg in a small bowl and set aside for about 5 minutes.
Next, beat the butter with an electric mixer until fluffy.

Step 2: Add the Sugars

Add the sugar, Tang powder, flax egg and vanilla. Mix until well combined.

Step 3: Sift!

Sift flour, baking powder and baking soda into the bowl. Stir to combine. It will be a little crumbly, that’s ok!

Step 4: Chocolate :D

Fold the white chocolate chips (or chunks) into the mix.

Step 5: Roll & Bake

Roll the cookie dough into tablespoon sized balls. Place the rolled dough on parchment paper and bake for 12-14 minutes in a 350 degree Fahrenheit preheated oven. Let the cookies cool about 10 minutes before eating.

    Can you skip the flax?

    I wouldn’t skip it, you could probably substitute a chia egg or a real egg if you’re not vegan.

    I'm not the author, but you'll need some sort of binder - that's what an egg or the flax in this case would do. You could probably sub in an egg if you're not being Vegan about it. I'm sure that there are other egg substitutes, but a quick Google search might be more helpful than me.

    I'd bet dried cranberries/cherries would be good in place of the chocolate too, as well as you could likely use Hawaiian Punch instead of tang if you aren't a big citrus/orange fan

    Yep! Just use regular butter, white chocolate chips and I think one egg would be enough.

    Ok,....I don't understand what I'm looking at in your first pic where you are fluffing the butter. What are the black swirls?

    Now that’s a good idea! I’ll have to substitute the Tang and see how it turns out :)

    what's the meaning of "vegan" butter?

    Any plant based/dairy free butter, some companies include: earth balance, Country crock, Mykonos. You can certainly use real butter if you’re not vegan.

    Do you mean 1 1/2 cup white chocolate, rather than 1 1/12?
