Default Million dollar cookie

The Pillsbury bake off prize winner shocked me. The winner was a Double-Delight Peanut Butter Cookie. Wait what???? She won a million dollars for making a peanut butter cookie? That must be an amazing cookie. It does look pretty good. I will have to test the recipe and see if it's a million dollar cookie. I think I will get my cookie recipes together for next year.

Kat - I'm with you - I'll have to dig out my receipes as well - and hey, I'm a county and State foods judge for the 4-H program. I'd better judge that cookie before they pay out a million to the winner!!!!

I like the idea of a cruchy outside and a soft peanut butter center. But million bucks.

One of the finalists Pam Shank works here where I do. She is so sweet and her recipe won in the internet category voting. Mascarpone filled something. I'm gonna have to watch it.

She sent us an email ---

I was trying to remember the people who asked me to let them know when they are airing the Pillsbury Bake Off. I have no idea what it
will be showing. The foodnetwork had randomly chosen 5 people to follow before,during,and after the event. None of the 5 won and I think
most of the show will probably be on them. They did go around to each of us and ask a few questions. I know when they were at my station,
I wasn't really doing anything. I had one done and one in the oven. I know at least I will be in the show at the awards ceremony!!! This will be fun
for me to watch because I really didn't get to see what was going on with everyone else. I hope they don't show anything from our videos we had
to do at home prior to the bake-off. Mine was so bad. My dtr was filming it and I kept laughing or saying dumb things. She kept making faces at
me and got mad once. She even stopped the filming and came back to finish another day. Anyway, here is the schedule for next week. It will
be on Foodnetwork. (Sharron-- will you send this to the people on our floor) suzieThanks
Pam

WOW your friend won the Breakfast & Brunches catogory of the Pillsbury Bake off. She had a very good chance to win a million dollars. Plus the Mascarpone-Filled Cranberry-Walnut Rolls just look tasty. My hubby can't eat walnuts or else I would make this. Maybe I can sub in Almonds.

My mom makes the best Monster Cookies!

They are oatmeal-chocolate chip cookies with M&M's in them. And they're as big as dinner plates!

Well, to tell you the truth --- IT IS ALL GOOD!!! We really do have some people here that can cook and bake!! About the only time I have had is a few years back I tried in a local contest and managed to pull of 3rd place for my first time attempt at ever entering any cooking/baking contest. It was Oven Baked Cajun Cabbage. You basically make your cheese sauce as you do with home made mac n cheese add Cayenne Pepper to par boiled cabbage. Top with bread crumbs and bake it in the oven for a while. It is really good.
I wish I could make the time to enter the gingerbread house contest we have here locally. To have a dedicated area to put the hours needed to so that I would atleast place........just dont have that kind of space. I will probably however just enter the same one this year. I've been experiementing and will let you know what I come up with.

"Wait what???? She won a million dollars for making a peanut butter cookie"

Okay is she going to use the money to help reduce the size of her ass and gut caused by eating all the ones that did not work, before she hit gold dust
