Trying to recall cookies from the past

CajunJacques | Nov 12, 2009 08:28 PM

One is a windmill cookie that my mom used to buy possibly in late '70s but definitely in the '80s but I don't know who made them. Here is a pic of it but I found no background on it:

and the other cookie:

My mom used to buy possibly in the late '70s but definitely in the '80s that came in a red (may have been the Nabisco logo) and clear wrapping and plastic tray about 4 or 5 rows wide and the cookie was yellow or kind of yellow and had a yellow creme filling (a somewhat thin layer). The cookie was round, maybe 1 1/2 to 2 inches in diameter and the cookie had a design on each side that were the same (sailboat?). I think the edge of the cookie had a thin, raised design like a ribbon and the surface had a print but I can't recall what was on it. The cookie wasn't terribly hard nor too soft. It was rather easy to bite into and crumble.

Both cookies were available in grocery stores.
