HERE'S A RECIPE FROM HILLARY...
This is from her official web site.
You can go there and see a copy written out on 'whitehouse stationary'

It's "How To Make Hillary Clinton's Chocolate Chip Cookies".
These aren't just any chocolate chip cookies, these are Hillary Clinton's own recipe.

According to the lore surrounding these cookies, Hillary used to make them for congressman and other politicians when she was Arkansas' first lady.

I hear Bill liked them too.
