Synopsis: THE $1,000,000-WINNING RECIPE
CREAM CHEESE BROWNIE PIE
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Pillsbury’s famous Bake-Off Contest, America’s most trusted name in cooking presents the most comprehensive, illustrated collection of prize-winning recipes from this beloved event. From savory main dishes to irresistible desserts, the 50th Anniversary Edition of Pillsbury Best of the Bake-Off Cookbook features the “best of the best,” including the $1,000,000-winning recipe of the 2000 Bake-Off event!
From the Inside Flap: For 50 years, people have looked to one cooking contest for the most delicious, the most exciting and the most uniquely American recipes this country's home cooks have to offer. The Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest presents the very best of what people are cooking today for their family and friends—for everyday dinners, special occasion desserts and mouthwatering breads. To celebrate the contest’s 50th anniversary, more than 350 of the most sought after prize-winning recipes from this famed cooking contest are gathered in one book, complete with gorgeous color photographs and stories about the people and the inspiration that led to their award-winning recipes.
But the Bake-Off Contest is about more than just baking. . . . Desserts have never been the same since the introduction of Magic Marshmallow Crescent Puffs, the 2000 Grand Prize-winning Cream Cheese Brownie Pie and the Tunnel of Fudge Cake, which became a household name in 1966. The Bake-Off is also about wonderful savory dishes, such as Salsa Couscous Chicken, Zesty Italian Crescent Casserole, Hearty Mexican Pizza and the now-famous California Casserole, which captured the Grand Prize in 1956 and won its creator, Margaret Hatheway, a cook's tour abroad, where she introduced this most American of dishes to chefs all across Europe.
Pillsbury Best of the Bake-Off Cookbook is a sweet and savory record of how American cooking has evolved over the years, illustrating how home cooks have captured their ethnic heritages in dishes adapted from their grandparents' countries to modern kitchens and busier times. The stories are as inspiring as the recipes themselves, from 1955 winner Rosemary Sport's prize—a new pink range—which provided her family with the motivation to become proud new homeowners to 1996's Grand Prize-winner, Kurt Wait, a single parent, who with the help of his son developed his $1,000,000-winning recipe Macadamia Fudge Torte, with the help of his son.
Hundreds of the very best recipes are accompanied by enticing color photographs and organized by category: Soups, Sandwiches and Snacks; Main Dishes; Side Dishes and Salads; Breads; Sweet Rolls and Coffee Cakes; Cookies and Bars; Cakes and Tortes; Pies and Tarts; and Other Desserts. Each chapter is filled with personal profiles highlighting the people who created the recipes plus the wonderful and often humorous behind-the-scenes stories from the Bake-Off Contest events.
The recipes are sensational; the stories are uplifting. Pillsbury Best of the Bake-Off Cookbook invites you into the kitchens and lives of the many people who have made the Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest the most loved, most respected showplace for this country's home cooks.
