Michelle Obama has won the quadrennial Family Circle cookie bakeoff, defeating Ann Romney by just three points in voting – about the margin that separates their husbands in the campaign.
Michelle eeked out her victory with a recipe for “white and dark chocolate chip cookies.”
I’m sorry, but the irony of submitting such a recipe when you’re the wife of the first mixed race president is a little hard to miss.
Ann Romney went with M&M cookies. And yes, in some respects, Mitt Romney does remind me of an M&M.
Michelle’s cookies garnered 4,844 votes from Family Circle readers, or 51.5 percent. Ann’s cookies picked up 4,557 votes for a 48.5 percent share.
