    AmyZoe's Note:

    This recipe takes a little longer because of the homemade dough, but it's worth the extra time in preparation. I'm pretty sure it came from Better Homes and Gardens.

      What a nice snackie! I brush mustard on the inside and use cocktail sausages. The dough is sweet n tasty! A hit wherever I take them.

      This recipe made for a fun supper. I followed the recipe exactly -- no substitutions, no alterations. Came out perfect! I used medium cheddar cheese and opted to use oil versus shortening. The crust is flaky and light... really delicious. The dough came together easily, too. I really enjoyed these Pigs in a Blanket! I took some pics and posted them to this recipe.
