Upscale Pigs in a Blanket with a Dip with a Kick


Pillsbury Crescent Dinner Rolls
Small package of beef little smokies
Raspberry Preserves, we used Bonnie Maman
Chipotle Hot Sauce, we used Cholula
Ranch Dressing
Lawry's Seasoned Pepper

Step 1: Unroll the dough from the can and make a big square by pressing the triangles together.
Step 2: Cut the square into little squares, about 2 inches by 2 inches. Then lay the little smokie diagonal in the square and wrap where the tips meet each other.
Step 3: Cook at 375 degrees for 9-12 minutes, until golden brown.
Step 4: While they are cooking, make the dip. Use 12 oz. of ranch dressing. Add in 2T. Raspberry preserves and stir. Taste, if you want it sweeter, add more. Then add 1 tsp. Chiptole Hot Sauce. Taste, if you want it hotter, add more. Last, sprinkle in the seasoned pepper and stir-about1/2-1 tsp.
Step 5:Now, take up the pigs in a blanket, put on a serving platter and sit the dip close to dip them in for added flavor with a Kick.
