Presidential Candidates’ Spouses Participate In Cookie Bake-Off

Every year, Family Circle magazine has a cookie-off among the potential first spouses’ recipes, and the vote often goes the same way as general election. In 2004, Teresa Heinz Kerry’s pumpkin spice cookies lost to Laura Bush’s oatmeal chocolate chunk cookies; in 2000, Laura’s Texas Governor’s Mansion Cowboy cookies beat Tipper Gore’s ginger snaps; and Hilary Clinton’s chocolate cookies beat Barbara Bush and Elizabeth Dole in the 1992 and 1996 elections. This year, Bill Clinton offers the Clinton family cook’s recipe for oatmeal cookies, Cindy McCain shares her (hopefully not plagiarized) recipe for oatmeal-butterscotch cookies, and Michelle Obama divulges the recipe for her children’s godmother Mama Kaye’s shortbread cookies. If Bill wins, does that put Hillary back in the running? [AFP]

UPDATE: It appears Bill Clinton’s recipe was stolen from Betty Crocker. Is nothing sacred? [Huffington Post]
