Fruit cookies

I can't remember who used to make fruit bars that had about 4 pieces joined together in the package - and about 3 or 4 sheets (of 3 or 4 each). They were fruit bars, or fruit squares, or something like that. I've not been able to find them and would like to know if they are available - or for starters what they were called and the company who sold them. I think the filling was either figs or raisins. Thanks.

I am sure someone will come along with an answer for you. I moved this to the cookie forum so more people will see it.

I remember those raisin ones - dang - that brought back a memory that I can't quite recall the details on - they were good!!! I don't think they make them anymore though - someone will know here.

GB - I was getting ready to move this too and as quickly as I clicked on the move this thread it said it was already in the cookie forum (you're fast!!!!)

LOL well you beat me to moving the mail order gadget one. I was ready to move that when it said it was already moved

I do not remember these cookies, but they sound great. I can't wait for someone to come along and let us know more about them!

No Alix - they were a little different. Newtons come separately, these were sort of pressed into the individual cookies but they were still all attached, you had to break them apart. I remember them - but can't remember the name. I remember the raisin ones.

Fruit Bars

They're Archway cookies. They have them at stores in IL & WI I know. I haven't really looked for them anywhere else. I grew up on them. At x-mas time only they have these malted nougat cookies, which are like nothing else & the soft lemon cookies, macaroons, soft oatmeal & I could go on.

No, it isn't Archway - it was before Archway was available here. These were thin - barely a crust over the filling. It was one of the old cookie makers - seems like Sunshine, perhaps. I don't know when anything has come so near driving me nuts!!
