Mesa woman named semifinalist for Pillsbury Bake-Off

MESA, AZ (CBS5) -

Charlotte Giltner knows her way around the kitchen.

She's hoping her experience and expertise will land her a spot in the finals for this year's Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest.

The Mesa woman was recently named one of 60 semifinalists in the 46th annual Pillsbury Bake-Off.

"Somebody has to win," said Glitner. "Why not me?"

Giltner's entry is "Red, White and Blue Dessert Tacos."

The dish includes Pillsbury biscuits rolled out into a circle, then filled with strawberries, blueberries and fresh whipped cream.

"They're very yummy," said Giltner. "The were created as a little nod to America and my husband, who is a disabled veteran."

Giltner said that the $1 million grand prize would make a huge difference in her family's lives, especially with ever growing medical bills.

This year's Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest is different from year's past, as America is being asked to vote for its favorite semi-finalists.

The top 100 vote-getters will advance to the finals, Nov. 10-12 in Las Vegas.
