Sue Compton of Delanco, N.J. was named the grand prize winner of the 44th Pillsbury Bake-Off® Contest in 2010 for her original Mini Ice Cream Cookie Cups recipe. At the 43rd Pillsbury Bake-Off® Contest in 2008, Carolyn Gurtz walked away with the million-dollar grand prize for her Double-Delight Peanut Butter Cookies. At the 2006 competition, the 42nd Contest, Anna Ginsberg, a stay-at-home mom who you might know from her blog, Cookie Madness, earned the $1 million prize for her Baked Chicken and Spinach Stuffing.C'mon, a million bucks is inspirational enough but you need more? Fine, Pillsbury has been very generous and has offered a prize pack just like the one they sent me to one of my readers. It includes a Pillsbury Bake-Off® apron, recipe book and pen. Now, you have no reason to stay out of the kitchen!
