ODE TO DISCONTINUED COOKIES

"why, nabisco, why?" 3.125 x 4.5 inches, acrylic on photopaper.

Since I was a young girl, I have always loved the plain cookies, chocolate was way too busy for me, and besides it got all gooey in my tea. (OK, I admit, I dunk). My favorites are no longer being made, and probably for the better, because I don't recall the ingredients and maybe now I don't want to know. One of those favorites was Nabisco's Royal Lunch milk crackers (I know, I know, it's not actually a cookie).

Do you have a favorite old cookie?

  1. Royal Lunch Cracker ingredients:

    Enriched Wheat Flour (contains niacin, reduced iron, thiamine mononitrate (vitamin B1), Riboflavin (vitaming B2)

    Vegetable Shortening (partially hydrogenated canola oil)

    Sugar

    Malted milk (adds a trivial amount of cholestrol) I have no idea whether this is a liquid or a powder.

    Leavening (calcium phosphate, baking soda)

    Salt

    Egg yolks (adds a trivial amount of cholesterol)

    I'm working on my own recipe to try to recreate them. I read all over the internet grief over the discontinuation of this cracker. Nabisco made a grave error in eliminating it. But it's been 7 years and they're not bringing it back. Mores the pity.
