The Bake-Off is Coming: Orange Cardamom Blueberry Crostada

Blueberry Crostada

CakeSpy Note: OMG! The 46th Annual Pillsbury Bake-Off is coming! Since I so deeply loved attending the 45th Bake-Off, I thought I would get you excited early by sharing some of the finalists' recipes. Do I need to tell you that the winner will receive one million dollars? My posting is on hyperdrive since the event is less than a week a day--check back often, because I will be posting recipes like crazy until the big event! 

How cool is this? A rustic dessert with minimal effort. It was cleverly dreamed up by Cathy Wiechert of Mound, Minnesota.
