Unfortunate. They were my favorite cookies as a kid, now they are nothing like they used to be. The texture is much more crispy, like they used a whole lot of butter flavored shortening. They are no longer as "soft" or "tender" like they were two years ago.
That's probably because these days they are no longer made in the same plant (on Caldwell & Howard) and they seem to be Butter Cookies in name only. No butter is harmed in the production of Salerno Butter Cookies.
