Michelle Obama wins US mag’s cookie contest

Washington: Michelle Obama has beaten Ann Romney to win US magazine Family Circle’s 2012 Presidential Cookie Bake-Off, it has been revealed.

Obama and Romney both submitted recipes to the contest, and after more than 9,000 people weighed in, “just 287 votes separated the two women, our smallest margin ever,” the publication said.

Romney’s M and M cookies got 48.5 percent of votes, while Obama’s white and dark chocolate chip cookies won with 51.5 percent, the Politico reported.

Family Circle notes that the bake-off, which it’s hosted since 1992, “has been a bell-weather in four out of five elections.”
