Michelle Obama and Ann Romney, both submitted cookie recipes to Family Circle magazine. Obama's was a white and dark chocolate chip cookie with white, dark and mint chocolate chips while Romney's is an oatmeal cookie with peanut butter, M&M's and chocolate chips.

The contest which puts the two leading ladies against eachother in the cookie battle, was polled by Famil Circle Magazine. The winner? The first lady herself, Michelle Obama and her chocolate chip cookie concoction.

Family Circle Magazine said on its website, "In our 2012 Presidential Cookie Bake-Off, we said it was your patriotic duty to bake, taste and vote. Did you ever-more than 9,000 readers weighed in. And the winner is...Michelle Obama! Victory was sweet for our current First Lady and her White and Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies, but just 287 votes separated the two women, our smallest margin ever. (In other words, Ann Romney's M&M's Cookies were no flash in the pan.)"

USA Today reported that now through election day just a few blocks from the White House, Occidental Grill & Seafood is giving away a free set of each of the cookies to every diner and can vote on the cookie.

"As of week four of the contest, Michelle Obama was in the lead with 58% of the votes. Romney had 40% of the votes. And another 2% couldn't decide," USA Today reported.

Chef Rodney Scruggs said to USA Today, "We are known as the restaurant 'Where Statesmen Dine,' and we understand we have passionate voters on both sides-both for cookies and for the real thing. But whomever comes out ahead, we welcome all parties to enjoy our fine food, desserts and wonderful atmosphere."

Diners receive ballots and can see who is winning weekly on the restaurant's Facebook page and Twitter account.
