October is National Cookie Month and 2012 is a presidential election year. What a perfect combination for a cookie bake-off!
Since 1992, when Hillary Clinton and Barbara Bush “bumped spatulas”, Family Circle Magazine’s “first lady” cookie bake-off has become a presidential election year tradition. Without entering into the political arena, KosherEye is presenting the two recipes in alphabetical order. Enjoy making these cookies; let us know if you like them (the cookies that is) and most of all – we encourage all of our reader to vote!
And the cookies please:
Let's have some fun!
- The first commercial cookie in the U.S. was the Animal Cracker, introduced in 1902.
- The Oreo, the best-selling cookie of the 20th century, was developed and introduced by the American company Nabisco, in 1912.
- The U.S. leads the world as the biggest cookie bakers and eaters, spending more than $550 million annually on Oreos alone.
