By Elizabeth Dias | @elizabethjdias | July 10, 2012

Once again it is time for the First Lady Candidate Cookie Contest, when Americans judge Presidents and would-be Presidents by their wives’ culinary skills. It’s a ridiculous exercise–this ain’t Mamie Eisenhower’s Million Dollar Fudge recipe of 1955, it’s 2012. But since the good folks at Family Circle magazine have asked Americans to do their “patriotic duty” by tasting Ann Romney’s and Michelle Obama’s cookies, we figured we could skip the social commentary and answer the crucial question: How do they taste?

Here in the TIME offices we conducted a blind taste test, analyzing both cookies and doughs. We debated the flavor and texture: Was one too greasy? The other too minty?

2. No fair. Ann was sabotaged

The maid that gave her the cookie recipe was disgruntled at the time and purposely left out ingredients.

4. Wait--they told us it was Halloween costumes that decided!

Ann Rombot's REAL recipe:

Cut servant's pay;
Scream and threaten, as usual;
Hire PR flack to find a recipe, somewhere;
Claim it as her own.
