for some reason these little guys always remind me of Easter...maybe its the ham??? In the early thirties, biscuit mix and cellophane set the "modern" pace.


2 4 oz can of  Vienna sausages
2 cups of Biscuit mix
prepare dough for "rolled biscuits " as directed on package, but roll 1.4 inch thick. Cut in 2 1/2 inch squares. Place a tiny sausage in the center of square diagonally, overlap two opposite corners and pinch to seal, leaving the tips of sausage showing. Place on ungreased baking sheet, brush with melted butter and bake at 450 for 7 minutes or until blankets are done. Serve hot  with prepared mustard if you choose.
