2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
12-oz pkg semisweet chocolate chips

Cool cookies on sheets for two minutes before placing them on wire rack for further cooling. Yield: 7 1/2 dozen cookies.

Fit for a President
Hilary Rodham Clinton's statement 'I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies,' no doubt led some to believe she never had. In fact, she has said, making oatmeal chocolate-chip cookies was a Christmas Eve tradition in her family. The recipe she submitted to Family Circle magazine was entered in a (Hilary) Clinton- (Barbara) Bush bake-off that the magazine sponsored during the 1992 Presidential campaign. Three weeks before the election, Family Circle announced that its readers had chosen Clinton with 55.2 percent of the vote.
