Presidential Election 2012 – Cookie Bake-off


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:

  • Michelle Obama's 2012 White and Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • Ann Romney's 2012 M&M Cookies
  • Let's have some fun!

    Cookie Trivia:
