Saucijzenbroodjes (Pigs in a Blanket)
Ingredients: (This recipe comes from a cookbook called Eet Smakelijk, which means “to eat well and with taste.”)
2 3/4- 3 lbs. sausage
3 cups flour
3 T. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 cup margarine
1 cup milk
Divide the sausage, forming 30-36 “pigs”. Do not roll in hands form carefully with finger tips or fork. (When we make these we use our hands…)
Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in margarine as for pie dough. Mix in milk. Form into smooth ball. Roll dough to 1/4″ thickness, cut into strips about 3 1/2″ wide. Wrap “pig” loosely in dough, over-lapping on the bottom. Do not pinch ends shut. Prick top of each “pig” with a fork. Place on ungreased cookie sheets, bake 15 minutes at 400F. then 15 minutes at 350F. till brown. May be frozen up to 4 months.
We have these every Christmas Eve. They are delightful!
