Talking Bill Clinton, Melania Trump assume first spouse cookie duty

Bill Clinton, Melania Trump assume first spouse cookie duty - CNNPolitics.com
Quote:
Bill Clinton is preparing to be "first dude," and that includes the quadrennial tradition of presidential candidate spouses submitting cookie recipes.

The former president of the United States, along with Melania Trump, Donald Trump's wife, submitted cookie recipes for Family Circle magazine's Presidential Cookie Poll, where readers pick between the two cookie recipes.
Quote:
The poll, which has been held during the fall of every general election year since 1992, is the latest sign in Clinton's historic candidacy, where the traditional responsibilities of the first lady could fall to a man for the first time.
Quote:
Clinton submitted the family's chocolate chip cookies made with old-fashioned oats, which won during the 1992 and 1996 polls.
Clinton's recipe is not vegan, however. Bill Clinton went vegan in 2010 and has said the diet has kept him alive.
whats not vegan about a cookie?
butter maybe?
Quote:
Trump, a first time entrant, submitted star cookies made with egg yolks and sour cream.
The contest started shortly after Clinton, whose position as a political spouse in 1992 with her own ambition and career, was at the time viewed by some as an oddity and an issue in the Democratic primary.
When reporters asked about her career and ambition, she responded with a line that is now famous: "You know, I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulfill my profession, which I entered before my husband was in public life."
I remember that and I remember trying one or both of the recipes

oh for those halcion days when chocolates and their chips didn't disgrace my hips

...halcion...hmmm...maybe it would be better if they baked up some good old spiked brownies

Step 1 - Make sure your hands are clean by rubbing them on the buttocks of your assistant chef...

Well, since he's a dude, the recipe will have to include bacon.
