So I tested both of the cookie recipes from Mrs. Obama and Mrs. Romney. Mrs. Obama won, but not by much, and honestly, as I hate peanut and nuts, I personally didn't like either. My husband did, but they were too "flat" for my father as both aren't the "soft" cookie type. I found both didn't present very well. What I did find interesting about Mrs. Romney's was that there was no flour in it. This might help those people who can't eat gluten (although the oats might cancel that out...don't really know!).
