Twinkie Pie

Standard

I’ve decided to start doing a “Dessert for Work” each week. I always post what I bake on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. To be honest, I post A LOT of food on Instagram. I’d been thinking about blogging the recipes for a while, but after Hayley Jernigan suggested doing a food blog and Corey Clem said I needed to open my own restaurant that really put a fire under my rear. So, here it goes.

This week I decided on an old family recipe from my Momma’s conglomeration of recipes. It’s been years since I’ve had a Twinkie Pie and I had a slight panic attack when Hostess quit making them, and I wasn’t going to ever be able to make one again. Luckily, they’re back on the shelves and this recipe is so easy and good I decided it should be my Dessert for Work.

I will warn you that for my food posts it’s basically going to be a picture of the final product and the recipe. To be honest, it drives me insane when there’s a picture for every step, unless it’s complicated then I understand.

Twinkie Pie

Ingredients:

  • 1 box Twinkies
  • 2 pkgs. vanilla pudding
  • 3 c. milk
  • 16 oz. sour cream
  • 1 can cherry pie filling
  • 1 tub cool-whip

Directions

  1. Beat vanilla pudding and milk in a mixer on medium speed (start slow and gradually work your way up to medium or you’ll have milk everywhere) until stiff and pudding like. I used the whisk attachment.
  2. While the pudding is beating, slice Twinkies in half and place in a 9×13 dish.
  3. Once you get the stiff, pudding like consistency, add the sour cream and beat until it’s well mixed.
  4. Pour the mixture over the Twinkies.
  5. Pour cherry pie filling over pudding mixture.
  6. Spread cool-whip over cherry pie filling layer.
  7. Enjoy!
