This $1 Million Recipe Will Blow Your Mind
The recipe for Peanutty Pie Crust Clusters has won the 47th Pillsbury Bake-Off, valued at $1 million. Its ‘fancy’ ingredients list includes refrigerated pie crust, vegetable shortening, peanut butter and some salted cocktail peanuts.
They probably taste good, as things made with peanut butter and pastry dough often tend to taste great. But their presentation is very rudimental.
Since 1949, amateur bakers around America have participated in the Pillsbury Bake-Off competition. While the rules and prizes have been changed over the decades, this year, to be eligible to win the grand prize of one million smackers, applicants had to use at least two ingredients from an approved list. It included some classic Pillsbury products and secondary brands, like Green Giant and Jif Peanut Butter, and no more than seven ingredients total.
This decades-old competition birthed some incredibly delicious homemade treats: Fudgy Bonbons, Candy Bar Cookies and Peanut Blossoms.
Make these delicious treats at home. The preparation is a piece of cake!
