"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Ingredients:

Meat Filling

1 lb of lean ground pork

Directions:
Dough

Sift together dry ingredients, and cut in the shortening. Mix the beaten egg with the milk (there should be 3/4 cup of liquid) Add to flour mixture and blend to make a dough. Knead the dough 8-10 times on a floured board. Divide dough into 2 parts. Roll each half of dough to a thickness of 1/4 inch or so. Cut rounds with a medium size cookie cutter or I use a medium sized can with both ends cut out. You should get about 15 rounds from each half.

Make the meat filling by blending the filling ingredients together. Mixing well to blend the spices. Make small links like link sausages, just long enough to fit on the round. Roll the dough up around the sausage( making like a little pig in a blanket and place on waxed paper seam side down. Brush with egg wash and let rest for about 15 minutes. (At this point they can be frozen for future use) Place them on a jelly roll pan lined with a brown paper bag. ( It absorbs any grease)
The old Dutch Women say that these should be baked and then refrigerated and rewarmed to serve.

Personal Notes:
These are a Dutch tradition in the morning and afternoon with coffee. I make them at Christmas Time. My sister Marjorie Loves them and reminds me when I don't make them. We make a couple hundred during the holidays.
