Packaged Cookie from the '70s/'80s

So there is this cookie my mom used to buy when I was a kid that I sometimes think about and have never been able to find. It was a type of sugar cookie from Europe (Denmark? Belgium?) that was piped into a continuous S shape. It had a particular flavor, almost like a Lorna Doone, that I specifically remember. The packaging was paper, but the cookies were protected by a corrugated paper liner. I found a cookie in Nick Malgieri's book "Cookies Unlimited" that look vaguely like it -- W's from Belgium, though these weren't exactly a W shape and they didn't taste like them, though that might be because the purchased cookies were from a commercial bakery. Does anyone recall these?
