The 44th annual Pillsbury bake-off is currently going on.  This year they are trying something new though…  “You be the judge” voting!  For the first time in over 60 years (yes 60 years though they say it’s the 44th annual) online readers will help decide the final 10 contestants.

How does the “You Be the Judge!” voting work? Judges will select 20 recipes to be placed online at www.bakeoff.com in pairs for a period of two weeks for each pair. Consumers can vote for their favorite recipe in each pair. The recipe from each pair that wins the most votes will earn a spot in the final competition, April 11-13, 2010, in Orlando, Florida.

Voting is limited to one vote per person for each pair of recipes. Voters must be registered members of www.pillsbury.com and 18 years of age or older as of May 1, 2009, to participate.

Go and cast your votes now, and then again on July 9, July 23, August 6, August 20, September 3 and September 17.
