Four finalists on stage for the 47th Pillsbury Bake-Off. 

Wednesday (December 3, 2014) and live from New York City, the 47th Pillsbury Bake-Off® Contest awarded Beth Royals of Richmond, Virginia, its grand prize for her original recipe Peanutty Pie Crust Clusters. Beth will take home $1 million along with $10,000 in GE kitchen appliances. The announcement was revealed by celebrity chef and host of the 47th Pillsbury Bake-Off® Contest Carla Hall on ABC's "The Chew," which she co-hosts.

"Peanutty Pie Crust Clusters have something for everyone – they are sweet, salty and have a great crunchy texture. We thought Beth's idea, to use Pillsbury's refrigerated pie crust in a candy-like recipe, was both unique and creative," says Jann Atkins, Bake-Off® kitchens manager. "This dish is easy to make and it stores very well making it a great contribution to holiday parties and potlucks."
