Throughout the illustrious history of the Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest, cookies and bars have increased in popularity every year. In Pillsbury Best of the Bake-Off Cookies and Bars, the Pillsbury Editors gather 107 sweet recipes representing these perennial Bake-Off favorites that celebrate this beloved American treat.

Chocolate chips, peanut butter, oatmeal, marshmallow, coconut, lemon, mint, and jams are just a few of the tasty ingredients and flavors that have been used in prize-winning cookie and bar recipes prepared throughout the nearly six decades of the Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest. The Pillsbury Editors reveal how these ingredients and the decades during which they were created influenced these treats. For instance:

With 39 inspirational, full-color photos, this cookbook is organized into easily referenced sections from "most requested cookies" and "family favorites," to "bake sale cookies and bars" as well as chapters on brownies and holidays. Each of the prize-winners features the name and hometown of the winner's creator and the year won. Other special features include a timeline that chronicles the Bake-Off contest through the decades, nutritional and cooking information (i.e., Exchanges and Carb Choices), a metric conversion guide, and most importantly, a nutritional breakdown for each recipe.
