Cows in a Blanket


One of my favorite party foods has always been cows in a blanket. Back home we have a big bowl on our table for every holiday or party and they always go fast. Last weekend I threw my son a graduation party with all of our family and I made a batch of these. I like to have mine plain but you could add cheese to the dough if you would like and also set up little bowls of various dips if you would like.

1 package of beef cocktail weenies
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
4 tablespoons cold butter
3/8 cup buttermilk (I used laban)

1. Preheat oven to 400F.

2. In a large bowl add flour, sugar, baking soda and baking powder. Cut in cold butter until mixture is coarse. Add a small amount of buttermilk at a time until a dough like consistency has formed. Allow dough to rest for a few minutes.

3. Tear off a piece of dough and wrap around cocktail weenie until all has finished. Place on a non-stick baking mat and cook for 13 minutes.

Yields: 30

    Wow, you made the dough yourself! Here in the US everyone uses mix from a box (Bisquik). Very impressive and very cute! I will have to make this for my daughter. :) Thank you for sharing this!
