C2 WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3O, 1996 FOOD THE SALINA JOURNAL Cookie / Chocolate chips economical FROM PAGE C1 ence their tastes." After the votes were tallied, the class revealed who submitted which recipe. Clinton's cookie received 39 votes; Dole's earned 20. Ann Brussow of Abilene admitted politics may have played a part in deciding the cookie champ at a party she and her husband hosted. A majority of their Sunday School class, comprised of couples ranging in age from mid- 30s to early 50s, cast their ballots for Dole's recipe, even though it was more expensive and labor-intensive than Clinton's, Brussow said. "Hillary's were easy, quick and very economical to make," she observed. "Someone commented that the pecan rolls were like a holiday cookie, not something you'd make for the kids for after school. "And when you think about it, Elizabeth Dole is not going to have a common, everyday cookie. We talked about where she went to school and how she was raised," Brussow added. V APPETIZERS Vote for artichokes on Nov. 5 By The Associated Press If you're hosting a party on election night, plan a menu that's easy to prepare and serve.

Store in refrigerator tightly covered. Makes 10 appetizer servings. No matter which candidate receives the most votes in November, Nancy Wiles of Hunter agreed that Dole's pecan rolls would be a winner this holiday season. She plans to add the delicate cookies to the plates of Christmas goodies she traditionally prepares for family and friends each December. "These caught my eye because they were different," Wiles said. "I love pecans, and these cookies were delicious. I made the chocolate chip cookies too, but I didn't like them as well as my favorite chocolate chip recipe."
