Back in March I wrote about the 44th Pillsbury Bake-Off® Contest. All of the entries are in and Pillsbury is asking for our help in determining the winner. That’s right, Pillsbury wants YOU to be the judge. This is the first time in the history of the contest that Pillsbury is using input from the public to help determine 10 of the final 100 recipes competing for the $1 million grand prize!
To participate, Pillsbury is asking that you watch a brief video from Jann Atkins, Bake-Off Kitchens assistant manager, who provides some tips for evaluating a recipe. Then register as a member of www.pillsbury.com and you’re ready to vote. The judges selected 20 recipes and split them into pairs. Each pair will be displayed on the site for two weeks so that members can vote for their favorite recipe from that pair. The recipe from each pair that wins the most votes will proceed to the final competition, held April 11-13, 2010 in Orlando, Florida. Choose carefully because voting is limited to one vote per person per each pair of recipes. The first pair of recipes was posted on May 14, 2009 and a new pair of recipes will be posted every two weeks (namely, May 28, June 11, June 25, July 9, July 23, August 6, August 20, September 3 and September 17, 2009). The voting period for the tenth and final pair of recipes will close at 11:59AM CDT on October 1, 2009. Visit www.bakeoff.com for the official rules.
Two winners will each receive a prize pack featuring a magazine of past Bake-Off® recipes and a Pillsbury Doughboy giggle doll.
