DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the oven to 400ºF. Grease a large baking sheet. Sift the dry ingredients (flour through salt) into a mixing bowl (or dump them in one at a time, whatever).
  • Rub the butter pieces into the dry ingredients until mixture is crumbly. Stir in cheese until evenly distributed.
  • Make a well in the dry ingredients and add the buttermilk. Stir well with a wooden spoon. Let the dough sit for 3 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the dough with flour and stir once or twice then turn out onto a well floured counter.
  • With floured hands, pat the dough into a 15 by 7 inch rectangle, trimming the sides if necessary to get a true rectangle. (Handle the dough as little as possible for tenderness, yeah right).
  • Using a pizza cutter, slice the rectangle into thirds horizontally then slice each third into thirds vertically, this will give you 9 small rectangles. Slice each rectangle diagonally into two thin triangles.
  • One at a time, roll up the sausages in the triangles. Place pointy side down on greased cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 12 to 13 minutes, until golden brown. Cool on the sheet for 3 minutes then tranfer to a wire rack.
