Hoo-hoo! — Pillsbury biscuit recipes that will make you happy as a doughboy

You won't find these exclusive Pillsbury Biscuit Breakfast Sandwiches at any fast-food chain, or anywhere else, for that matter.

One of life's greatest pleasures is poking the Pillsbury Doughboy right in the stomach — hoo-hoo! It's too bad then, that you can't really do it in real life. Anyway, this week's Recipe SWAT Team theme, if you hadn't already guessed it, is Pillsbury biscuits.

We were inspired by the Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest that started in 1949, originally called the "Grand National Recipe and Baking Contest." The first one was held in the elegance of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City, in honor of the company's 80th anniversary. It was a smashing success, and it went onto become an annual event. What was the winning recipe? Theodora Smafield's No-Knead Water-Rising Twists, for which Smafield received the Grand Prize of $50,000.

Today, the contest is held every other year, and the last time a prize was awarded was in 2010, for a cool $1 million, which went to the creator of the Mini Ice Cream Cookie Cups. Our own in-house contest this week, while rather modest in reward — a smile, a hearty pat on the back, and a well-worn cookbook — is no less creative.

With this week's recipes, we've got breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even dessert covered. For breakfast, check out my very own Pillsbury Biscuit Breakfast Sandwiches, which hit the grill for a few minutes to get nice and toasty; for lunch, definitely consider Anne Dolce's Chicken à la King Recipe, rich and creamy; and for dinner, try Christie Ellis' Chicken and Dumplings Recipe. And don't forget about dessert — Nathan Cyphert's Dessert Empanadas Recipe. They are a must-try and the winning recipe this week. Congratulations!
