Pigs in a blanket:

Heat oven to 450°.
Stir together with fork in bowl to form a soft dough:
2 cups Bisquick baking mix
1/2 cup cold water

Gently smooth dough into a ball on floured cloth-covered board. Knead 5 times. Roll dough with lightly floured stockinet-covered rolling pin into square, 12×12 inches.

Cut square into 12 equal rectangles by cutting into 4 long strips, then cutting each strip crosswise into rectangles, 4×3 inches.

Wrap each rectangle of dough around 1 frankfurter.

Pinch edge of rectangle into dough to seal. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 15 minutes. Serve hot with catsup. 12 servings.

To knead, fold dough in half, then push it down and away from you with the heals of your hands. Turn dough over and repeat. To prevent dough from sticking, cover the board with a pastry cloth or a clean dish towel, tucking the ends under. Sprinkle with a little flour and rub it in well.”
