Piggies in blankets

Buy yourself some cocktail wieners and cozy them up in some Pillsbury crescent dough. To turn it a little high brow or create a fun juxtaposition, serve alongside some fancy mustards or sauces.

By Caroline Lubbers, Whipped, The Blog

1 package cocktail wieners
1 package Pillsbury crescent dough (they actually make a new dough roll now that has no creases. I used this and cut them my own size – worked great).
Milk for brushing on top

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut the crescent dough into triangles about 1-1/2 inches long at base and 2 inches tall. Lay the sausage on the wide end and roll up. Put them on a baking sheet. Lightly brush the dough with milk. Bake for 9-10 minutes or until dough is lightly browned. Serve with spicy mustard or other sauces of your choice.
