The Winner is Announced for the 44th Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest on Oprah


[singlepic id=840 w=320 h=240 float=right]Sarah Fuchs did a great job and her recipe was fantastic, however there were also 28 other great “Sweet Treat” desserts that the judges thought out did hers. Her category did end up winning the entire contest, but not Sarah’s “Fudgy Chocolate Chip-Toffee Bars.” The winning recipe was: “Mini Ice Cream Cookie Cups.” The announcement was made today on the Oprah Winfrey show and won the grand prize of ONE MILLION DOLLARS!

We had a great time and Sarah is already cooking up more ideas in her head for the next Pillsbury contest and maybe even entering others!

Going back in time just a bit, on Monday afternoon, the Pillsbury film crew selected Sarah, along with 9 other finalists, to interview for a website “spotlight” about the whole bake off experience. They supplied make up, a film room and all and put her under the spotlight, literally! Later on that same night, Pillsbury announced the four category winners. I have a sampling of what went on below; it was quite the event!
