Pillsbury's 46th Bake-Off Contest
Posted in the Oakville Forum
#1 Jun 19, 2013
At bake-off time, Pillsbury receives many thousands of recipes from everyday people. In 1968, my dear Mother was thrilled to become a Pillsbury Bake-Off finalist. After all these years, my sister and I ...(YES, BOTH OF US!) have had our recipes chosen and we have become semi-finalists in Pillsbury's 46th Bake-Off Contest. There are 60 semi-finalists in our category, which is "Simple Sweets and Starters" and only 34 of us will become finalists and go on to the Bake-Off being held in November, for the first time in Las Vegas.
The contest is very different from what it was back in "the 60's" , they now use an online voting system to choose which of us will continue on as finalists. WE NEED VOTES!! A good star rating with a review is wonderful, too!
Please go to bakeoff.com and vote for:
Almond Café Cookies
(Nancy Fahey: North Kingstown, Rhode Island)
Chocolate Peanut Butter Stacks
(Martha Weaver-Farley: Wolcott, Connecticut)
I am the only semi-finalist from Connecticut in the "Simple Sweets and Starters" category. My sister now lives in Rhode Island, but spent many years in Wolcott, also. Voters have already decided a finalist from Glastonbury in the first category, "Amazing Doable Dinners".
Neither my sister or I belong to any social media networks so we can sure use some help in getting "the word out" ... PLEEEEASE HELP US GET SOME VOTES (and stars)!!!
Voting ends before noon CST (not sure what time that is our time) on June 27th.
The Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest is one of the most iconic competitions in the United States. It originated in 1949, with the first competition at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. New this year, to encourage simpler, original recipes, submissions were limited to seven or fewer ingredients and must take 30 minutes of less to prepare, not including baking or cooling time. For more information, go to www.BakeOff.com
Want to give "it" a try? The final category is "Quick Rise and Shine Breakfasts" . Recipes can be sent in July 4th-August 8th.
