Certainly the most unique press release I've received in a while comes from Libertarian presidential candidate George Phillies: his family recipe for Kaurabides (sic) cookies.
Of course, we have to include his recipe for kourabiedes, which are Greek cookies:
1 lb unsalted butter
1/2 cup XXX sugar
2 egg yolks lightly beaten
2 jiggers (about 3 oz total) brandy, ouzo, or hazelnut Kahlua (George
says:"My mother used brandy. I used Hazelnut Kahlua. You are baking
these: The alcohol will all be gone before eating.")
1 cup fine chopped nuts. ("My mother used chopped walnuts or blanched
almonds. I used finely chopped hazelnuts.")
1 tsp baking powder
4.5 - 5 cups sifted floor [sic].
Whole clovesPreheat oven to 350. Grease cookie sheet.
Beat the butter until fluffy--about 15 minutes.
Add sugar slowly to beaten butter.
Add lightly beaten egg yolks, brandy ouzo or kahlua, nuts, baking powder
Beat until homogeneous.
Drop with a spoon onto greased cookie sheet. The individual cookies
should be about the size of a thumb. The traditional shape is a
crescent. My mother preferred a diamond. Stud each cookie with a clove.
My mother proposed 15-20 minutes giving a deeply browned cookie. I stop
at around 12, giving a pale cookie.
Remove from oven. Let cool.
Makes about 7 dozen cookies.
