  • 1 (12-14 ounce) package of Lit'l Smokies or Cocktail Sausages, patted dry
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt, plus a pinch -- separated
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
  1. Preheat the oven to 400° and have ready a sheet pan lined with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. 

  2. Pat the sausages dry using paper towels and with the tines of a fork, poke two sets of holes in all of the cocktail sausages. Set aside until ready to use. 

  3. Whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Add milk and butter and stir until combined. 

  4. On a floured work surface, pat out the dough, dust it with flour and using a rolling pin, roll it out into a rectangle, about an 1/8" of an inch thick.

  5. Cut lengthwise strips, about 1" wide. Then cut 2 1/2-3" sections across the strips. You should have about 20 rectangular strips. Combine any dough scraps and repeat with what's left. Place a cocktail sausage at the end of each strip and roll it to close. Place seam-side down on prepared baking sheet. Repeat until all are assembled. 

  6. Bake for 15 minutes, serve, and enjoy!
