So, in case you missed the news, I attended the 47th Pillsbury Bake-Off last week. Woo!
I will have a full roundup of that adventure for you shortly, my dears, but in the meantime I had to share some important news about the event.
This year, things were a little different. Instead of announcing the million dollar winner, they announced four finalists, which had been narrowed down by a set of esteemed foodie judges. While the judges' input will count for 55% of the final tally, the final winner will be decided by online vote.
That's right: you could have a say in who wins the million dollars! VOTE HERE.
Meantime, though, let me better educate you on the recipes in the final running.
First, we have Chocolate Doughnut Poppers.
They're made with crescent dough, which is stuffed with chocolate hazelnut filling and finished with a sweet glaze and nuts on top.
Next up: Peanutty Pie Crust Clusters.
These addictively sweet-and-salty treats are made with a melange of peanuts, pie crust, toffee, and white chocolate.
And then, venturing into savories, creamy corn-filled stuffed peppers.
Peppers are stuffed with creamy corn and then rolled in crescent dough--very cute.
And then another savory: Cuban-style sandwich pockets.
Visually, sort of like cuban sandwich meets pop-tart. I say that as high praise.
