They were a round-flower shape with a hole in the center and had the best taste. There are cheaper varieties out there, but they just aren't the same.

I loved them cookies. I called the company and they told me that they were too costly to continue to make. They broke up a lot. My grandfather used to buy them for me every saturday.

Thanks for jogging my memory. I *LOVED* these when I was a kid. You could stick your pinky finger through the hole and eat them petal by petal. My friend, brother, and I used to put on little puppet shows with Pelham marionettes when we were kids, and invite the neighborhood to watch and my Mom (she was a saint!) would not only put up with this, but she would serve all of us these cookies and apple juice. I think the kids must have come more for the food than for the plays. We wrote the scripts ourselves, and since the only marionettes we had were a Gypsy, a Soldier, a Pony, and a Duck the plots were surreal. Definitely more Ionesco than Shakespeare! Thanks again for letting us all know what happened to these great treats!

I was just munching on some Danish butter cookies I got for Christmas and I thought of the Nabisco ones. Anyone else remember that they had "NBC" on them? I googled and found this page and was saddened, but not surprised, to learn they were discontinued. Hope this never happens to Oreos or Fig Newtons!

I logged on looking for this cookie, though it has taken me a week to remember which cookie it was. I thought they were called butter rings, but I used to stick my finger through them too - fond memories. Anyway, I ate a cookie with a chocolate filling which tastes a lot like them (elfs make them, and you have to take the filling out!) These elf cookies are a bit larger than they used to be, and I believe they changed the recipe and flavor. For me, it is worth tossing the filling, as I would pay a premium to taste the butter rings again, and this is really close!

I have been searching for the Chocolate Snaps for decades. My favorite cookie since I was 4. Closest I have found ( and they taste almost the same ) are the packages of OREO 100 calorie packages, as they have no creme. Ah the memories of innocence back in the North Jersey of the 1960s

I cannot believe Nabisco removed their "Butter Cookies" from America's stores. Shame on them. I loved them and have been searching for them for years now. If they're expensive, charge more like everybody else. Let "M/M American" decide if they want to pay the price. If it's not panning out, THEN remove from production. Come on NABISCO, have a heart! ;-)

Oh my gosh this web site is awesome! I have been looking for these cookies. I called them too and they don't make the anymore. You know the market they would have of those people who grew up with these cookies ( age 40 something) and now want their children and eventually grandchildren to experience them. Nabisco bring back the REAL original BUTTER cookies!!!! I used to LOVE dunking them in tea. Yummy yummy yummy! A would be buyer of them in Southeast Florida.

I don't remember them being called Nabisco Butter Cookies, but I do remember Salerno Butter Cookies (although, they may have been made by Nabisco). They were by far my all-time favorite cookies. What a shame they quit making them. Alas, it seems like companies quit making everything we like!

After reading these comments, I guess I can give up looking for them. I thought they were Sunshine Buttercup cookies (yellow box?)with the hole in the center and a flowery design. Probably, at some point Keebler or Nabisco took over Sunshine. Whatever, I'll stop looking for them now.

Im gonna say that all the brands that made butter cookies, also had the flowery design with the hole in the middle,but ive googled them all and the one that i remember most, was in fact, Salerno. Nabisco didnt have regular butter cookies and the Sunshine brand I couldnt even find a pic for. Either way, butter cookies are the Best! I went looking for them today and couldnt find them. Lays took away my Dill Pickle chips too , I wish companys would put it to a vote before removing our favs off the shelves

Like someone said earlier I would put the cookie on my finger and eat around the flower of the cookie. And yes a cold glass of milk I would eat the whole pack! Another way I used to eat them was with vanilla ice cream! I used to put ice cream between two cookies and just bite into it until it was gone! Please bring those cookies back!

I loved these when I was young. Something else that has slipped away from us. Do you remember dunking them in a glass of milk? Leave it in the milk one second too long, and the wet part would fall in the milk. Eventually I just packed them in the milk till it was like a pudding, and ate it with a spoon.

Salerno's cookie factory was near my childhood home in Niles on Cauldwell Ave off Oakton. I grew up smelling the wonderful aroma of baking cookies. After college I waitressed across the street from Salerno at Victoria Station (c:1979). The Salerno family used to come in for lunch. I bet it was Mike Salerno that went off on his own, as he seemed close to my age (at that time). Salerno Biscuit Co.'s production facility in Niles was acquired by National Biscuit Co. in Oct. 1995. The Salerno brand was purchased by Sunshine Biscuits in 1991.

I miss those cookies so much! Especially the green paper wrapping around the box that you had to cut with scissors or a knife to open. They were the most delicious butter cookies. They also used to be in the Nabisco multi-pack that had a bright pink wrapping and had oreos, lorna doone's, sugar wafers and a few other cookies. I would pay $20 for a box of those butter cookies.

I also grew up eating these cookies. I remember going to church as a young child and the snack served was these cookies. They were called "Jesus Loves You Cookies."

I consider myself a novice expert lol on Nabisco products. My dad was a salesman for Nabisco from the late 1960's to the early 1990's. Nabisco was founded as the National Biscuit Company (or NBC for short) in 1898. The NBC was dropped in the early 20th century due to the confusion with the National Broadcasting Company (NBC). They still kept the original cookie molds and that is why the cookies still had NBC on them. I was raised on Nabisco products (I was born in 1978) and remember quite a few that were only in production for a short time or were finally discontinued for cost reasons. After reading these posts, I remember the Nabisco Butter Cookie. However, I used to eat it as a part of the Nabisco "Favortie Assortment" package. It was pink in color and had a paper wrapping over a cardboard box. The box contained Oreos, Nabisco Sugar Wafers, Nabisco Butter Cookies, Brown Edge Wafers (I believe), and one or two other varieties. It was nice because you had 5 different varieties of cookies in one box. I also fondly remember the Nabisco Almost Home line that was introduced in the early 1980's. They had a BIG soft chocolate creme sandwich that was about the size of Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies but tasted MUCH better. They only lasted a year or so. I'm sure that they were also discontinued because they were too costly to make. Nabisco also invented the toaster pastry. Nabisco came out with their Toastettes line before Kellogg's Pop tarts. They were much better than Pop Tarts and had more filling. Alas, they also "gave up" and Pop Tarts became the king of toaster pastries. The Brown Edge Wafers were a part of the "Gold Line" (the packages were all gold in color) and tehre were about 5 different varieties. One of the best was the Brown Edge Wafer sandwiches, which had 2 Brown Edge Wafers with chocolate in the middle. I am really surprised that Nabisco still makes Pinwheels because they are made from real chocolate and only offered in the cold months. They were also one of Nabisco's priciest cookies, even 25 years ago. Some other people mentioned Chocolate Snaps. I was helping my dad on his territory in Louisville, KY in the late 1980's and we were in a Pic Pac (IGA type store). I happened to walk next door to a Family Dollar and found Nabisco Chocolate Snaps on the shelf. They had been long-discontinued in Louisville but Family Dollar had some on the shelf. They were probably a special buy from corporate. If anyone is interested, my dad has quite a few "product cards" from the 1960's and 1970's, which show the packages of products during that time. I will see if he has a picture of the Nabisco Butter Cookies package.

Sadly, all good things come to an end. I also remember searching for these cookies as a 40 something year old, I still referred to them as ring cookies. On a dreary winter day here in Boston it would be awesome to have some of those butter cookies. It would put a smile on anyones face. I remember the pink package that they came in too. I would also do the ring thing and dunk them in milk. This is America, make a good product and we will buy it! Hey do like the girl scouts and make them during the holiday season if its to pricey to keep them in production! They were a special treat.

When growing up, we called these cookies "finger cookies" because we'd put one finger through thr hole in them & stack a "finger-full"as a snack after swimming. They were inexpensive, & also there was a chocolate chip version. They are a tradition at my mom's house. To this day small kids will ask for the "finger cookies". A local AG store carries the Murray brand of the butter flavor, at almost $4 for a pack of about 11 oz. If anyone knows another brand or where they can be purchased or ordered online, please let me know. Email address is:

My children are all in their '59's now. I made a dessert with these butter cookies that they loved when growing up. Then my grandchildren enjoyed them when visiting us. Now I'd like to make them for my great-grandchildren..........but discovered last week no grocer has them. Bummers! Oh, the dessert? Make stacks of 4 or 5 cookies with REAL whipped cream between each cooky-layer and top with more whipped cream. Refrigerate for one day. They used to disappear quickly! And I had lots of help licking spatulas and beaters.

It's funny how a cookie could bring back so many warm memories.

When I was a little girl, I would go spend a week with my grandparents each summer. Every afternoon around 4:00, I'd have my bath, and my grandmother would have me sit on the front porch to wait for my grandfather to get home from work. While waiting, I got to have a small bottled Coke and 4 Nabisco butter cookies. I loved those cookies! I sure wish they still made them because I'd buy a truck load.

My friend and I were talking about the Sunshine butter cookies the other day. I loved them when I was growing up. Dipped them in cold milk and could eat the whole package. In fact, when I was shopping today, I found a whole row in the store dedicated to cookies only. I was wishful thinking that I might find my Sunshine cookies. Alas, I came home empty handed and in a dud mood!

My grandfather spent his career as a Nabisco cookie man, from the mid '30s to the mid-'60s. Before mergers, the company really took care of its employees, and kept my grandparents in free cookies throughout their retirement and even at his funeral in the '80s. So I was raised a brand gal. Best cookies: butter finger cookies, brown edge wafers (around way before the '90s), chocolate snaps and chocolate chip snaps, animal crackers (they look like blobs now, as if someone destroyed the detailed molds), and those long, thin raisin crisps (Sunshine called them Golden Fruit cookies). I don't believe the cookies ever had pork in them, maybe beef tallow?

No one mentioned the cream, because there wasn't any. This was a lovely plain butter cookie shaped like a daisy, and you could eat them off of the tip of your finger stuck thru the hole in the center of the cookie. I miss that assortment box, too ! I agree with the previous poster who stated that Nabisco or it's affiliates should bring them back seasonally and see how they do. Bet people would love seeing them again- I know I'D buy them ! So many wonderful, little, simple treats that aren't around anymore. Nowadays, cookies have too much overly sweet frosting, sprinkles and other crap on/in them, and they're too BIG- no wonder kids are fat. : ( Am going to check out the Hy-Vee ones- think I saw them in Family Dollar store (in Virginia).

Yes, the sugar rings were the best! I wish they still made them!! Fond memories of these with my grandparents and great-grandparents when they had coffee together.

They have these cookies still in the store and online? They just taste like crap now, unless you like cardboard?

I just bought some Butter Ring Cookies at the Dollar Tree store -- THEY TASTE EXACTLY LIKE THOSE OLD NABISCO BUTTER COOKIES I LOVED!!! The brand is "Lil' Dutch Maid". Try 'em. The price is right!

well glad to know so many had fond memories of these cookies. I saw some butter cookies today and brought-PRAYING they would taste like those Nabisco butter favorites. Of course I was sadly disappointed. I decided to write Nabisco and asked if they could PLEASE bring back for a limited time. I hope they consider it....(sigh)

I absolutely loved these cookies. I grew up on them, and they are the best butter cookies I've ever had. I wish they would bring them back. Even if only temporarily to see how they do today. I'd buy a bus load of them.

The name of the cookies were Sugar Rings, and were made by Nabisco. There were swirls all around on the cookie, and were about 3" in diameter. NOT to be confused with the Butter Ring cookies, which had the words Butter Ring right on the cookie. BEST COOKIES EVER!!!!

When I was little our church kept them in the nursery for the little ones. I used to beg my Mom to help her when it was her nursery time just to eat the the buttery cookies.
