Oh no! News organizations everywhere are reporting a backlash against the winner of the Pillsbury Bake-Off. Mini Ice Cream Cookie Cups earned a cool $1 million and guest appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show for their creator, Sue Compton. The New Jersey mom combined refrigerated sugar cookie dough baked in muffin tins with chocolate, jam and ice cream for the kind of treat that, well, any 6-year-old could make.
And there’s the problem. Dissenters are arguing the face that these sugar balls don’t involve any actual cooking.
The San Jose Mercury News has a particularly amusing recounting of the kerfuffle.
I’m thinking: People. Get a life. It’s the Pillsbury Bake-Off.
I’m also thinking: Mmmm….mini ice cream cookie cups….
