Their 'Chessmen' cookies are a better than decent shortbread cookie, and not 'dry' -- there are better certainly, but of the Pepperidge Farm cornucopia of products, I'll stick by these.

Chessmen are a scam! A set of chessmen is 32 pieces, yet there are only 24 cookies in the package.

Bad as analogy. The pope's butthole is kept well-lubricated at all times with a special lube made from the tears of deaf boys.

That old New Englander who did the Pepperidge Farm commercials was gay. A friend did work on his house and his manager lived together and there was only one QUEEN sized bed in the house! I joke you not...
The Tim Tams from Australia are great cookies(now being imported by sister company Pepperidge Farms into the US) for all of you who haven't tried them yet.

Does anyone know what happened to these cookies I don't know what they were called but they were basically rolled up Milano cookies like tubes with nothing in them? I can't find them anywhere now except in that giant package of assorted cookies but I could've sworn they used to be sold just by themselves at one point.

R28, no, I don't mean the pirouettes (sp?), I mean the rolled-up cookie in this photo. I think either I'm remembering wrong and they were never available by themselves or they've been discontinued.

The recipe in R16 is indeed very, very good. It's actually the only Paula Deen recipe I consider successful.
However, I suggest making it a day before you're going to eat it because it tastes much better if it sits at least overnight. If you mix it all up and eat it right away, you often get an overwhelming taste of the cream cheese, which will put you off of trying it again later.
Oh, and whip your own cream instead of using Cool Whip. I mean, you can use Cool Whip and it's ok, but why not make your own?

I agree - dry, crumbly, overpriced crap. Even Girl Scout cookies are better and I hate those too.
But does anyone remember their diet bread from the 70s/80s? It was 40 calories a slice and each slice was about a third the thickness of regular bread. It tended to be dry too, but I liked the thinness.

Pass by the PF cookies and go straight for the LU section. Less Frankeningredients than PF.
The Petit Ecoliers are very good, but the Petite Madeleines are divine. Divine, I tell you!

Decades ago, Pepperidge Farm baked cookies and cakes with real butter, eggs and other fresh ingredients. Sometimes in the 1960s, the company was sold to Campbell Soups. The decline in quality stared at that time.

R27, if you don't mind spending a lot of money for those plain rolled wafer cookies, check out Yoku Moku, a Japanese cookie company. Their stuff is made to be given as gifts so it's pricey. Good stuff, though and no "frankeningredients" as a previous poster cleverly named them.
Check out the listing of stores selling their stuff in the U.S.

Our store only carries Petit Ecolier. I love some with strong coffee. We also get Waffeletten wafers, and I have made people mad by openly referring to them as "Luft Wafer Cookies".

I would sell my would sell my soul for a giant bag of Chessmen and Dark Chocolate Orange Milanos.
However, I do thing their breads always seem stale and dry when compared to other items in the same price range. Especially their superthin sliced white or wheat. Just dry as all get out.

When I was a kid I liked those turnovers too, R47. I was always burning my mouth on the super-hot filling because I wanted to eat them right out of the oven while they were still very puffy and crispy.

The bread is dry because it's baked in central locations then shipped out frozen. It is by no means fresh like even the crappy french loaves baked in house by supermarkets.

No love for PF's Bordeaux cookies? I would think they'd get a vote for the name alone. Not to mention their deliciousness.
