Oprah announced Pillsbury's million-dollar bake-off recipe today on her show. The winner? Mini Ice Cream Cookie Cups made by baking refrigerated cookie dough rounds in a mini-muffin pan and topping with ice cream, chocolate, and walnuts.

So let me get this straight: A recipe using pre-made refrigerated cookie dough and ice cream is worth $1 million? It's a really cute idea, but I hesitate to even call it a recipe. My dinner last night had more ingredients in it, but, apparently, homemade gets you nowhere these days.

Still, I'll probably make this dessert -- I'm a sucker for mini food.

Visit Oprah.com for the winning "recipe," as well as to see the three other finalists: Salmon Pecan-Crusted Tartlets; Zesty Lime Fish Tacos, and Tomato-Basil Eggs Alfredo in Bread Baskets.

Do you have a recipe you think is worth $1 million?
