Recently I've had an opportunity to go back and improve the Hostess Twinkie recipe found on page 47 of the first book, Top Secret Recipes. Specifically, I wanted to make the creme filling more stable, using non-dairy ingredients like the original product, so that it was shelf-stable and easier to make. Here now, is the much-improved Hostess cream filling recipe, using fewer ingredients than the original clone, and with marshmallow cream as the new secret component.
