Archway Frosted Lemon Cookies--what do they look like where you live?

I am seeking the Archway Frosted Lemon cookies of my midwestern childhood. When I was growing up in Indiana, these cookies were round with stripes of frosting drizzled all over them. They were VERY soft and cakey.

Nowadays in Boston and other places I've looked, they are square with scalloped edges and a solid coating of frosting in the center. They are a little harder and not nearly as delectable as the cookies of my youth. (Truthfully, I have very accurate taste memories :)

I know that Archway has regional bakeries and some variances throughout the country, so my question is: has anyone seen these striped cookies of yore? If so, will you please tell me where you live so I can move there very soon? Alternatively, has anyone seen any shapes other than the square-with-scalloped-edges? If so, I will seek those out in the hopes that they more closely resemble my beloved striped cookies.

By the way, does anyone else have a soft spot for Archway? I also love their Windmill cookies.
