"breakfast treat" cookies

Lately I really miss Stella D'oro "breakfast treats", which are a light, crispy cookie, almost like a hard sponge sorta thing. They look like this:

Anyone have a recipe for a cookie like the ones described? Obviously the texture is what's the most important to replicate, so just making any old cookie dough into S shapes won't be the best option. The original ingredients (simplified) are:

ENRICHED FLOUR, SUGAR, PARTIALLY HYDROGENATED OILS, EGGS, EGG YOLKS, INVERT SUGAR, CALCIUM CARBONATE, BAKING SODA, NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR, SALT.

I'm guessing the texture is affected by the fact that both whole eggs and yolks are used (assuming the invert sugar is just used to paint that strip of glaze on the outside, and not in the dough itself). Any ideas?
