Fans determine how raspberry apple stacks stack up

A Washington woman is a semi-finalist in the “Quick Rise and Shine Breakfast” category of this year’s Pillsbury Bake-Off.

And her sister, 61-year-old Kathy Coon of Spokane, wants people to vote online for her Raspberry Apple Stacks recipe.

This is the first year in the 64-year history of the baking contest that fans have the chance to determine which 100 recipes will compete for the $1 million grand prize.

Voting runs through Sept. 26.

The grand prize will be awarded in Las Vegas in November.

Today, Coon called the Food section to see if The Spokesman-Review could help spread the word.

Her sister, 55-year-old Kelly Story, lives in Sunnyside, Wash., where her husband is the editor of the local Daily Sun News.

According to a story posted on the newspaper’s website, this was Story’s third time entering the contest.

"The recipe I submitted is very easy, and quick, to make. If you like starting your day with something hot and fruity and sweet, this one is probably for you," she said told the Daily Sun News.

The contest started in 1949. The first $1 million grand prize was given in 1996. Official rules and other information can be found at
