Twinkie Burritos? Twinkie Lasagna?
CHICAGO (AP) - Twinkies, they're not just for dessert anymore. The new "Twinkies Cookbook" has recipes for everything from a Twinkie Burrito to Twinkie Lasagna.
Theresa Cogswell compiled about 50 recipes for the book.
Many were submitted to Hostess, as part of Twinkies' 75th anniversary celebration last year.
Cogswell tells Illinois' Daily Southtown newspaper that one of her favorites is a berry-laden Patriotic Twinkie Pie.
It's red, white and blue.
Cogswell says it makes a great centerpiece for a Fourth of July picnic, which you can also eat for dessert.

Among other joys it guides sophisticated cooks to Twinkie Sushi, and comfort-food devotees to Pumpkin Twinkie Bread Pudding.
