Pigs in Blankets


Cocktail sausages or hot dog sections are wrapped in a pastry dough, making tasty little appetizers for a party or game day gathering. Serve them with mustard or similar sauce.

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup shortening
  • ice water
  • 2 dozen cocktail sausages or hot dogs, sliced


Sift together flour and salt. Cut in shortening and add just enough ice water to hold together. Chill. Roll dough out to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut in squares large enough to cover a sausage (if using hot dogs, slice in 2-inch lengths). Place wrapped sausages or hot dogs on a lightly greased baking sheet; bake at 400° for about 15 to 20 minutes, until pastry coating is browned.
