The 44th Pillsbury Bake-Off® Contest entry period ended in mid-April, and now it’s time for YOU to be the judge! For the first time in the contest’s 60-year history, you can help determine the 10 recipes among the final 100 that will compete for the $1 million grand prize!
How does the You Be the Judge! voting work? Judges will select 20 recipes to be placed online at www.bakeoff.com in pairs for a period of two weeks for each pair. Consumers can vote for their favorite recipe in each pair. The recipe from each pair that wins the most votes will earn a spot in the final competition, April 11-13, 2010, in Orlando, Florida.
Voting is limited to one vote per person per each pair of recipes. Voters must be registered members of www.pillsbury.com and 18 years of age or older as of May 1, 2009, to participate.
The first pair of recipes was posted on May 14, 2009 and a new pair of recipes will be posted every two weeks (the next updates will be on 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.
So I encourage you to go and cast your vote! To help you decide which recipe deserves a shot at the million-dollar top prize, watch this short video of Jann Atkins, Bake-Off® Kitchens assistant manager, as she shares some tips for evaluating a recipe:
