pigs in a blanket

(serves 4)

This is my dad's favorite thing to make for his grandsons. Thanks to Alia who helped me to realize that lil' smokies can travel well in the winter!

for the dough:
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 butter
1/3 cup reconstituted milk

12 lil' smokies

*mix flour, baking powder, and salt
*cut in butter and add milk slowly until dough forms a crumbly ball
*roll dough into 12 smaller balls and roll each ball into a flat 4 inch circle with you nalgene bottle or just between your hands
*place a lil' smokey in the center of each circle and wrap the dough around
*heat butter or oil in a pan and fry until golden brown on all sides

*if you're feeling lazy you can use pre-made refrigerator rolls (like Pillsbury Grands)

*for more flavor add a slice of you favorite cheese inside each roll.
