47th Pillsbury Bake-off Contest

Calling all cooks!  It's entry time for the 47th Annual Pillsbury Bake-off Contest.  I remember my mom buying the recipe books showcasing all the winners.  We love crescent rolls and it's time to put my thinking cap on for finally submitting my own creative recipe.  Go to and check out the rules.  Who knows, maybe one of us could win the top prize of $1 million dollars for something we love to make.

Original recipes can be submitted online at through May 8, 2014.  The top 100 recipes compete in November.

The two categories currently open are Weekend Breakfast Wows and Amazing Doable Dinners.

Each recipe must have 7 ingredients or fewer and at least two of the eligible ingredients linked here.

Besides the top $1 million dollar prize are some great awards:
  • 1 Grand Prize: $1,00,000 and $10,000 in GE Appliances
  • 3 Recipe Category Prizes: $10,000 and $3,000 in GE Appliances
  • Special Awards (valued at $5,000 each), including the GE Imagination at Work Award, Jif® Peanut Butter Award, Crisco is Cooking TM Award, Eagle Brand® Signature Recipe Award, Pillsbury® Gluten Free Award, Pillsbury® Clever Twist Award, WatkinsTM Vanilla Award and Reynolds® Baking Magic Award
  • 100 Finalists Prizes, including a trip to the Contest Finals in Nashville

Pillsbury has some great products to start your recipe with.  From biscuits to crescent rolls, pizza crust to cookie dough, you can sure get some inspiration from last year's 100 winning recipe book that I was lucky to receive as part of my post.

Are you inspired to enter?  Hope to see you in the final 100!
