Enter the new Pillsbury Bake-Off!

Pillsbury Bake Off Ready Set Make

It’s time to show America what you’ve got – enter the new Pillsbury Bake-Off® Contest!

For the first time in the 64-year history of the nation’s premier cooking competition, America will vote for entries selected by the Bake-Off® Kitchens to determine which 100 recipes will vie for the $1 million grand prize. Those 100 finalists will compete at the Bake-Off® Contest finals, November 10-12, 2013, at the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

Recipes entered must include no more than seven ingredients (not including table salt, ground black pepper and water) and take 30 minutes or less to prepare (not including baking or cooling time).

To give creative home cooks more chance to enter, this year the Bake-Off® Contest features three recipe categories with separate entry periods. The first call for entries is now closed, but two additional recipe categories will begin accepting submissions later this year. That means you still have two chances to enter to win this year’s contest!

The two recipe categories are:

Simple Sweets and Starters

These sweet treats and appetizers are the hit of any party. And even better, they´re a breeze to prepare, making entertaining easier than ever. Examples: cookies, bars, pies, tarts, bite-size appetizers, tartlets, pinwheels, puffs, bruschetta or focaccia.
